On Friday, January 27, 2017, the Odum School of Ecology held its annual Graduate Student Symposium and Recruitment Weekend. The event, organized entirely by Ecology graduate students, featured informal talks on current student research, a keynote lecture by Dr. Elizabeth Sudduth, and an undergraduate poster session. Several members of the CEID community presented research on a range of infectious disease topics.
The Center would like to congratulate all of those who took part in sharing their ongoing research with the greater academic community at UGA and our guests. To read more about a particular presentation, please follow the hyperlink embedded within each title.
