Check back in December 2019 for information about how to register for Research Day 2020 and submit an abstract.


Research Day is an event where EPI members and collaborators showcase their wide range of pathogen-related research. Research Day includes breakfast, a poster session, lunch and keynote speeches by two leaders in the prevention and treatment of infectious disease. This year, the event took place in the Reitz Union Ballroom on February 7th, 2019. Read a quick overview of Research Day 2019 here, or watch recorded video of the full talks here.
