The ninth annual Great Plains Emerging Infectious Diseases Conference will take place on March 27th, 2020, at the University of Iowa College of Public Health.

The GPEID Conference highlights basic, applied, epidemiological and translational research in biomedical and veterinary disciplines. Major topics may include but are not limited to antimicrobial resistance, zoonotic and vector-borne diseases, global health, healthcare-associated infections, molecular diagnostics and epidemiology, public health preparedness, and science communication.
We’re pleased to announce that this year our keynote speaker is Dr. Jean Tsao!
