The sixth annual Great Plains Emerging Infectious Diseases Conference will take place on April 7th-8th, 2017, at the University of Iowa College of Public Health. Just as in previous years, this conference will serve to bring together public health professionals, researchers, faculty, and students in microbiology, infectious diseases and related fields working the Great Plains and Midwestern states. The GPEID Conference highlights basic, applied, epidemiological and translational research in biomedical and veterinary disciplines. Major topics may include but are not limited to zoonotic and vector-borne diseases, global health, healthcare-associated infections, antimicrobial resistance, molecular diagnostics and epidemiology, public health preparedness, and science communication.
We are pleased to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Karen Bush from Indiana University, Bloomington, currently a Professor of Practice in Biotechnology (profile). Her keynote address, “Antibiotic Resistance: Past, Present and Future”, will be on Friday, April 7th.
