• Breaking Down Silos: The Convergence of Infectious Diseases and Noncommunicable Diseases – A Workshop Date: June 11, 2019 - June 12, 2019 (1:00 PM Eastern)

    This is a 1.5-day workshop that will explore the growing understanding of how microbes interact with and affect humans in multiple ways, ranging from affecting normal physiological functions to chronic diseases. The workshop will allow participants to gain a deeper understanding of how the distinction between infectious diseases and noncommunicable diseases is blurring and how this is extending to new approaches, such as the use of vaccination to treat certain cancers.
