The Kilpatrick Lab at the University of California Santa Cruz is happy to host the Bay Area EEID conference this Saturday, February 26th 2022 from 10 am – 3 pm PT.
See the meeting agenda here.
The Bay Area EEID conference will be a full, one-day event with faculty, post-doc, and student presentations and posters.
While we wish we could all finally see each other in person, we are still looking forward to virtually seeing the exciting disease ecology and evolution research the Bay Area has generated! Mark your calendars for February 26th, let your colleagues know about the conference, submit to us what you’d like to present, and keep an eye out for our announcements!
This meeting is an annual event hosted by rotating institutions in the San Francisco Bay Area. For information on previous meetings, see here. If your lab or institution is interested in hosting the next BAEEID conference, let us know.

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.
