When worms and germs compete, who wins?

 Registration is closed for this event
Join us for cocktail hour, dinner, science quiz (with prizes!), and presentation by Professor Vanessa Ezenwa.

Humans and animals are rarely infected with a single disease-causing organism at any one time; simultaneous infections are the norm. Historically, infectious diseases have been studied one at a time.
Since most hosts are routinely infected by more than one type of parasite, concurrent infection (or co-infection) has emerged as a key challenge for wildlife, veterinary, and human health. Interactions between parasites co-occurring within a single host have profound effects on infection outcomes ranging from disease severity and progression within individual hosts to pat-terns of disease spread across populations.
Dr. Ezenwa will discuss the study of concurrent infection and how this per-spective is providing new insight into the spread and impact of infectious diseases.
