Infectious Disease Interest Group (IDIG)

The Infectious Disease Interest Group (IDIG) is a group of students, faculty, and practitioners from various departments, the State Lab of Hygiene, and Department of Health that’s mission is to bring individuals together who work and/or are interested in the population-level aspects of infectious diseases.

July’s Infectious Disease Interest Group topic will be concerning Listeria monocytogenes, which is cropping up in some of the strangest places in food research and public health. Dr. Chuck Czuprnski and Dr. Rachel Klow will discuss food borne outbreaks and FRI’s work with the isolates.

The IDIG meets on the second Friday of every month from 4-5pm at the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory located at 445 Easterday Lane, next to the School of Veterinary Medicine on the University of Wisconsin Campus. For those who cannot make it, we will broadcast a webinar.

The first 45 minutes of the meeting will be discussion (with various formats) of a rotating central topic headed bu different departments, agencies, schools, and programs with ties to the University of Wisconsin. The remaining 15 minutes will be saved for announcements of current events in !I from participants. Refreshments are served.

Please RSVP so room size and refreshments can be planned accordingly.
