Help transform Ohio State into a world leader in infectious disease research and education. Share your thoughts about the challenges and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration in the infectious diseases arena.

Questions to be addressed include:

  • How can we build multidisciplinary networks in thematic areas?
  • How do we secure large, multi-investigator/center awards?
  • What’s the best way to develop training programs, improve patient care and inform public policy?

Select the date that works best for you:

November 17, 2016, from 3-5 p.m.
November 21, 2016, from 3-5 p.m.
Biomedical Research Tower (Room 115)

The Center for Microbial Interface Biology (CMIB) is transitioning from a university level center to a more comprehensive institute. With the momentum created by programs such as the Infectious Disease Discovery Theme, Public Health Preparedness for Infectious Diseases and numerous other centers and groups, the expanded institute will provide infectious disease researchers across campus with the ability to construct a more cohesive, robust infrastructure. The infrastructure will support existing strengths, seek new opportunities and facilitate synergistic interactions among researchers in the clinical, basic and social sciences.

Learn more about the strategic plan that is being developed and help build an environment where Ohio State faculty, staff and students can work in innovative ways to address critical issues in infectious disease global health.
