The EpiCenter for Disease Dynamics at the One Health Institute, University of California, Davis, will host the 3rd Bay Area Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases (BAEEID) meeting virtually on Friday, April 23, 2021, starting at 11AM Pacific.
This conference will provide students, postdocs, researchers, and faculty an opportunity to present and gather feedback on their latest research, propose new research directions, and build connections with local collaborators.

Infectious diseases are an increasing threat to global public health, and the complexity of disease dynamics necessitates advances in understanding their ecology and evolution. The San Francisco Bay Area is home to many research programs focused on the ecology and evolution of infectious disease. We aim to foster interaction and collaboration between groups at different institutions. Through the annual BAEEID conference, we promote increased cross-institutional awareness and collaboration, while keeping everyone up-to-date on the latest EEID research being carried out by Bay Area groups. We also strive to support the development of students and early-career scientists by actively reaching out to university student groups and labs and by keeping the costs of attendance as low as possible. Increasing communication among research groups in the Bay Area is helping develop a strong collaborative network and advancing our field.
