Workshop and research exchange program for ecohealth and infectious disease research

EcoHealthNet is a program for US and international graduate students interested in ecohealth and infectious disease research. EcoHealthNet is comprised of 2 parts: an annual workshop and a summer research exchange program. This year's workshop participants will receive high-level training from experts on mathematical modeling of disease dynamics and spatial analyses of disease risk. Research exchange students will conduct 2 to 3 month long research projects on high-profile, well-funded domestic and international research projects, ranging from human-primate zoonoses and disease emergence in Uganda to the dynamics of West Nile virus in the USA.

The application process is open now until March 5, 2011 for both the workshop at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, USA from June 13-17, 2011, and the summer research exchange to take place internationally during May to September 2011.
