BBSRC Workshop on the Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases

Dr Vicki Brown

Dr Vicki Brown recently attended a BBSRC workshop on the Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases (EEID) at the University of Edinburgh. The goal of the workshop was to bring together mathematicians, life scientists and social scientists from the USA, UK, Israel and China to build multi-disciplinary partnerships. There were talks from academics in all the disciplines and a lot of break-out sessions where participants discussed the ‘big questions’ that are likely to be foci for research in the coming years.
