Next-generation molecular and evolutionary epidemiology of infectious disease

Globe map graphic

Scientific discussion meeting organised by Dr Oliver Pybus, Professor Christophe Fraser and Professor Andrew Rambaut

Event details

The dynamic interaction between genetically-variable infectious diseases and their host populations represents one of the most complex and intensively-studied phenomena in biology. Spurred by enormous advances in genomics, immunology and information technology, new inter-disciplinary approaches are being forged. This meeting will bring together researchers sharing a common aim - integrating currently unconnected data and models of infectious disease to address issues in human and animal health.

Biographies of the organisers and speakers are available below and you can also download the programme (PDF). Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the event and papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions B.
