Molecular Epidemiology

July 17-22, 2016

Since the discovery by Robert Koch that bacteria can be cultivated in artificial medium, the laboratory has been developing an important role in infectious diseases research. In the last 20 years, the application of methods from molecular biology in the study of the epidemiology of infectious diseases has become an indispensable component in research in this area. This International course is especially designed to present the principles and practices of this new discipline in epidemiology to lab professionals and epidemiologists of representative regional institutions involved with infectious diseases of relevance to the public health. The course will concentrate on problems of infectious diseases that are emergent and re-emergent.

Open registration until 04/30/2016.
