The Math.Epi.Lab at the Canadian Association of Veterinary Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine

The CAVEPM conference rotates between the Canadian veterinary colleges and this year the meeting was hosted here at the Ontario Veterinary College. Our group presented three oral presentation and three posters. It was also a great way for our new summer students to begin their summer research experience.

Epidemics 4 conference

It's an exciting time of year for scientists who work in infectious disease. November 19-22, 2013 is the 4th International Conference on Infectious Disease Dynamics in Amsterdam. This is THE place to catch up on the latest and greatest advances in our field. Attendance is sure to inspire new research project ideas and the networking opportunities are sure to generate lots of interesting conversation. 

 Are you attending the conference? If so, plan to swing by my poster on Wednesday evening to talk about antiviral stockpiling for an influenza pandemic and the ways that we are using mathematical models to think about the size of stockpile that might be required for pandemics with different characteristics.
