CADMS Seminar Series

We offer on a bimonthly basis what we call “CADMS Seminar Series” which cover diverse topics in line with CADMS activities (e.g. modeling, surveillance, etc.). Those seminars are given by different national and international invited speakers and target a diverse audience from students and faculty to stakeholders and policy makers. These outside speakers provide breadth and new ideas to better prevent and control diseases, allowing investigators and decision makers to explore and exchange ideas in a relaxed venue. The opportunity for cross-fertilization of ideas and knowledge are fundamental to accelerate the advance of research, technology transfer and outreach pursuits.
