Join us for the fifth annual seminar series supported by the IDASTP (Infectious Disease Across Scales Training Program) and the MP3 Initiative (Molecules and Pathogens to Populations and Pandemics).  This weekly series of seminars and discussions on infectious disease research and control across scales will be presented by visiting Emory speakers, Emory faculty/postdocs and IDASTP students. Seminar and discussion topics are chosen to provide a broad overview of the current status of the field. Attendance of seminars will allow attendees to keep up to speed with developments in the field, and also provide a weekly opportunity to meet with peers and faculty in the IDASTP program. We encourage anyone interested in the infectious disease across scales research approach to attend. 


Recordings of select talks can be found on our The MP3 Initiaitve & IDASTP YouTube Channel
