World Health Interest Group

hosted by the Center for Global Health and Diseases

Overview

This seminar series examines a broad range of topics related to infectious disease research in international settings.  Areas of interest are certain to include epidemiology, bioethics, medical anthropology, pathogenesis, drug resistance, vector biology, cell and molecular biology, vaccine development, diagnosis, and socio-cultural factors contributing to or compromising effective health care delivery in endemic countries. Additionally we will discuss intellectual property policies on global access to medical innovations. Topics will also include neglected diseases and the interactions between these diseases with HIV and malaria infections. Speakers will include a diverse group of regional faculty and post-doctoral trainees, as well as visiting colleagues from around the world.  Students will be asked to read a journal article written by the speaker and then discuss this article with the speaker after their seminar.

This weekly seminar meets most Fridays throughout out the Fall and Spring Semesters between 9AM - 10AM.
