Infectious Diseases Research Colloquium Fosters New Research
The Office of the Vice President for Research and Information Technology and the Colorado State University Research Foundation are hosting an Infectious Diseases Research Colloquium April 5-6, at the University Park Holiday Inn, Fort Collins, Colo.
Research, collaboration, and new technology all aid in finding answers to infectious disease mechanisms, targets, and eventually vaccines, diagnostics, and therapeutics. This colloquium is designed to:
Provide an overview of the myriad of infectious diseases research activities on-going along the Northern Front Range.
Stimulate discussion among investigators.
Help foster new collaborations and the partnering of research disciplines or integration of new technology.
The program will cover a wide range of research areas including human pathogens; infectious diseases in agriculture; drug and vaccine development; and post-genomic technologies. The colloquium will benefit investigators with research activities that could be applied to infectious diseases but who have not yet received infectious diseases funding, as well as researchers with established infectious diseases programs.
Individuals at pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies interested in learning more about research activities in infectious diseases also may attend.
