Viral Traits and Infectious Disease Emergence Symposium

From September 9th to 10th, 2024 the Center for the Ecology of Infectious Diseases at the University of Georgia will host a symposium on Viral Traits and Infectious Disease Emergence. The hybrid symposium will be held in-person at the University of Georgia, with a Zoom option. Registration is now open.
The symposium aims to review knowledge on viral traits and disease emergence and synthesize current knowledge and best practices for disease modeling through invited talksround table discussions, and a poster session, facilitating the participation of both established and early-career disease ecology researchers.
Groups will be organized around one of the three major components of the disease emergence process:
  • Infection
  • Transmissibility (spread)
  • Disease severity (virulence)
