EPI Research Day


EPI Research Day

EPI has been hosting its annual research day since 2009. This is our biggest event of the year, containing two keynote talks from renowned speakers and a large poster session with 100+ abstracts. This event provides an outstanding opportunity for investigators in the field of infectious diseases to showcase their work and meet other investigators with similar interests.

People view the posters at EPI Research Day 2018. Posters fill the ballroom in rows of 9 poster boards and people walk in between the aisles.
