Human activities are impacting environmental processes at an unprecedented scale. These changes also influence the ecology and evolution of infectious diseases. TriCEM is hosting an exciting event centered on these topics at Duke’s campus next Thursday – Pathogens Gone Global: Disease Ecology and Evolution in a Changing World.
This symposium will engage with the latest findings in this arena, including research on cross-species transmission of parasites, One Health, host-pathogen responses to environmental change, and predicting zoonotic disease emergence. There will be a series of short talks by local and invited speakers, a debate on how best to prepare for future pandemics, and a keynote address by Prof. Jonathan Patz of the University of Wisconsin.
This event is free and open to the public, but today is the last day to register! Learn more and register at: https://sites.duke.edu/globalpathogens.
