Infectious Disease 2019

In an effort to provide a platform to discuss leading scientific research on a range of topics, LabRoots has added another virtual event to the line up of conferences for 2019 – Infectious Disease. Join us for this free, one-day event on April 25, 2019 as we discuss and exchange thoughts, developments and information on latest issues regarding the rise, spread, and control of infectious diseases.


The theme for this year's event is The Past, Present, and Future of Infectious Diseases with the following tracks:

  • Stories and Lessons of the Past
  • Current Challenges and Controversies
  • Emerging Tools and Methods


This virtual, online conference will provide a single day packed with speaker sessions with industry experts, research poster presentations, and an exhibit hall with thought leaders from the field. Infectious Disease 2019 is the perfect platform for leading scientists, researchers, practitioners, public health professionals, members of academia, and other allied health professionals to hear the latest on emerging and re-emerging infections.

Don't miss the opportunity to participate in this groundbreaking conference, which is absolutely free to all participants. Enjoy our Leaderboard, where you can move around the entire event, earning points for a chance to win one of LabRoots most popular t-shirts.

Speakers

  • Colleen Kraft, MD
    Associate Professor, Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, Emory University School of Medicine
  • Meredith Ashby, PhD
    Director, Market Strategy for Microbial and Cancer Genomics, Pacific Biosciences
    Biography
      Meredith Ashby is the Director of Market Strategy for Cancer and Microbial Genomics at Pacific Biosciences. She completed her Ph.D. at Caltech mapping the gene regulatory networks that direct sea urchin development just as the sea urchin genome was being sequenced. Inspired by the impact of genome sequencing on her research, she joined PacBio after a brief postdoc at UCSF. She has been with the company since 2009, and has worked in R&D on both sequencing optimization and bioinformatics application development. She is now focused on exploring and facilitating the use of PacBio long read sequencing to solve the unmet needs of scientists studying how the wide range of human genetic variation impacts health and disease.
    • Christina Muzny, MD, MSPH, FACP
      Associate Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology, Division of Infectious Diseases, University of Alabama at Birmingham
      Biography
        Dr. Christina Muzny obtained her medical degree at the Texas A&M University Health Sciences Center College of Medicine. She subsequently completed an internal medicine residency and an infectious diseases fellowship at the University of Mississippi Medical Center prior to joining the infectious diseases faculty at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in 2010. Her clinical and research interests focus on HIV and sexually transmitted diseases (specifically vaginal infections) among sexual minority women of color and women with increased numbers of recent sexual partners. Dr. Muzny currently has a K23 career development award from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to study the pathogenesis of bacterial vaginosis among African American women who have sex with women. She is currently an Associate Professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases at UAB, a teaching faculty for the Alabama-North Carolina STD/HIV Prevention Training Center, and an Associate Scientist for the UAB Center for AIDS Research.
      • Corey Watson, PhD
        Assistant Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics, University of Louisville School of Medicine
        Biography
          My research interests span the fields of molecular, population, evolutionary, and disease genetics/epigenetics, using both human and animal model systems. The primary projects in my lab are currently focused on characterizing and cataloguing antibody genetic diversity in human populations, laboratory mouse strains, and the rhesus macaque. Our ultimate aim is to understand how genetic/epigenetic variation influences antibody function and the development of the immune response, and how this information can be leveraged to inform our understanding of disease susceptibility and clinical health outcomes.
