Alan Alda Workshop Participation

2022 Science Communication Workshop

The IDRRN hosted a two-day on-campus workshop led by Stony Brook University’s Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science on July 28 – 29, 2022.

Faculty Mentee pairs participated in the workshop to accomplish two goals:

  1. Provide the next generation of scientists an opportunity to gain science communication immersion experience from this world class organization.
  2. Retain Alan Alda Center for Science Communication teachings within CSU faculty that can be imparted to future generations.

Infectious Disease Diagnostics for the 21st Century

July 8-10, 2019
Colorado State University

There is a growing realization that accurate diagnosis of infectious diseases is key to both treatment and stopping disease spread. The symposium brought together experts from academia, industry, and government laboratories across the spectrum of disease detection, monitoring, and treatment for human, animal, and plant pathogens to discuss topics ranging from new diagnostic platforms to new areas of need in diagnostics.

2019 Agenda

Metabolism of Infectious Diseases: Defining Relationships for Solutions

June 12-14, 2018
Colorado State University

This symposium brought together scientists representing a breadth of infectious diseases and immunology research, with a collective interest in studying the metabolism of pathogens and their hosts. The goals were to: 1) provide a current and comprehensive understanding of the role of metabolism in infectious diseases; 2) highlight emerging technologies and approaches import for studying infectious disease metabolism; 3) understand how information and knowledge gained through the study of metabolism can be translated into interventions to prevent or control infectious disease; and 4) create an opportunity for the formulation of new hypotheses and collaborations.

2018 Agenda

Innovation in Infectious Disease Research: Challenges & Opportunities

June 7-9, 2017
Colorado State University

These facts demonstrate the importance of a continued focus on methods of early identification, detection and development of countermeasures to address infectious disease threats in both animal and human populations.  The symposium brought together academic research groups, industry specialists and developers and government agencies to stimulate dialogue and discussion, foster collaborations and concerted approaches in developing innovative programs aimed at converting the challenges faced in infectious disease programs today into opportunities that advance and protect public health interests. Topics ranged from efforts to increase basic understanding of disease pathogenesis to discussion of novel methods for production of vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostic agents will be reviewed by innovators in the field.
