In addition to these keynote speakers, we will provide travel awards to six early-career scientists (graduate students, postdocs) who would like to merge infectious disease and social justice in their research. These scientists could include social justice scientists who do not work on infectious disease or infectious disease scientists who do not address social justice. The goal of bringing them to this meeting is for them to engage and connect with people from different fields and to find ways to synergize infectious disease research with social justice.

Science Communication

Communicating about infectious disease and vaccination with the public

Infectious Diseases Across Scales

Integrating infectious disease across scales, from immune molecules and

pathogens to populations, ecological communities and pandemics
