Friday Conference Series

IGHID partners with the clinical division of infectious diseases and the Center for AIDS Research on a weekly conference series featuring distinguished clinicians and scientists from UNC, local universities, and other national and international institutions.  The topics are varied and appeal to not only infectious disease specialists, but also professionals in epidemiology, public health, microbiology, biostatistics and other global health-related disciplines.

The conference takes place every Friday (September through May) from 8:30-9:30 a.m. in 1131 Bioinformatics (first floor auditorium) on the UNC campus.  For more information, please contact the conference coordinator, Kathy James. To suggest a speaker, contact the faculty organizer, David Wohl.
