EcoHealthNet 2012

EcoHealthNet is a program for US and international graduate students interested in infectious disease research. EcoHealthNet is made possible through a partnership among EcoHealth Alliance, the Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment at the University of Wisconsin, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, the Tufts Center for Conservation Medicine at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, USGS, National Wildlife Health Center, DIVERSITAS ecoHEALTH, the International Association of Ecology and Health (IAEH), the University of Minnesota’s Ecosystem Health initiative, the CoHab initiative, the Smithsonian-Mason Global Conservation Studies Program and a number of other partners. EcoHealthNet is comprised of 2 parts: an annual workshop and a summer research exchange program. Workshop participants will receive high-level training from experts on topics such as mathematical modeling and spatial analysis, field and laboratory techniques for disease ecology studies, the economic costs of emerging diseases, and epidemiology and ecology. Exchange students will conduct 2 to 3-month research projects on high-profile, well-funded domestic and international research projects, ranging from Nipah virus surveillance in Bangladesh to developing primers for avian influenza viruses in China to wildlife surveillance in Brazil to White Nose Syndrome in the United States.

The application process for Summer 2012 will open up in October 2011!
