Ecology meets Epidemiology

A conference with focus on disease ecology and arranged by the network One Health Sweden. The conference will be held on 22-23 March, 2017, at Linnaeus University in Kalmar.

Diseases have a profound impact on all forms of life, and can determine the fate of individuals and populations. Importantly, most pathogens can infect more than one host species, which means that diseases are often shared and shaped by interactions among species and the environment.

At the Ecology meets Epidemioloy workshop we wish to gather scientists from biological, veterinarian and medical faculties to discuss the latest topics in disease ecology, ranging from animal ecology, disease epidemiology and immunology. The conference is organized by One Health Sweden, a network of researchers across disciplines interested in the ecology and epidemiology of multihost and zoonotic pathogens. We especially encourage young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) to come and present their work, meet senior researchers and exchange ideas with peers.

Paper submittal and registration is now closed.
