April 25 – James Burtis
Round table discussion focused on chronic infection. What role does chronic infection play in your system, or another system that you find interesting? Please come ready to speak for 2-3 minutes to introduce your topic of interest. You can also prepare visuals if you want (PowerPoint / whiteboard). We’re going to keep this fairly open, so please feel free to speak about how chronic infection might affect transmission, ecology, evolution, microbiology, or any other aspect of infectious disease in which you are interested. We hope to keep the topics broad, and we’ll see if any common themes emerge.
