CCDD ID Epi Seminar Series
April 7th @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Talk title: The epidemiological and evolutionary dynamics of HIV in Rakai, Uganda: Insights from 30 years of population-based research in Eastern Africa
Presenter: M. Kate Grabowski, Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Department of Pathology.
Dr. Grabowski’s research focuses on the epidemiology, prevention, and control of HIV and sexually transmitted infections in sub-Saharan Africa. Over the last decade, she has made major contributions to understanding the role of mobility and migration on HIV transmission dynamics, impact of HIV prevention and treatment programs on HIV outcomes, and HIV molecular epidemiology. Most of Kate’s research is nested within the Rakai Community Cohort Study, one of the largest and oldest population-based HIV cohorts worldwide. Kate also has broader academic interests in preprint peer review, the ethics of open data science, and the use of pathogen genomics for public health in low-income settings.
About the series: Each spring, the CCDD hosts a seminar series featuring experts presenting the latest research in infectious disease epidemiology and modeling. The ID Epi Seminar Series aims to bring in speakers from various disciplines within infectious disease epidemiology, broadly defined to include the population biology of pathogens and other allied topics. Seminars will be held on Thursdays at 1pm ET between February 10th and May 12th with the exception of March 17th. Recordings of presentations will be made publicly available unless indicated otherwise on the event page.
