18th ANNUAL GREAT PLAINS INFECTIOUS DISEASE MEETING
November 1-2, 2019
After a 4 year run at the University of Kansas, GPID 2019 will return to the University of Missouri on November 1-2, 2019. Continuing on its tradition of fostering networking and cutting-edge research in infectious diseases, this year’s program will highlight the research of the region’s graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and newest faculty.
We are excited to debut new activities in this year’s schedule. Day 1 will begin at 3:30 pm on Friday, November 1, with a keynote address in the Monsanto Auditorium of the Bond Life Science Center by Dr. Marshall Bloom followed by a tour of the BSL-3 facility on campus, the Laboratory for Infectious Disease Research. After networking over an evening reception and dinner, there will be a short session on emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases by Dr. David Franz. On Saturday, faculty and senior students and post-docs from throughout the region will present their research on infectious diseases in three plenary sessions and a poster session in the Adam’s Conference Center and lecture hall located at the College of Veterinary Medicine.
