Seminar Series

The Center for Interdisciplinary Research to Prevent Infections has hosted a monthly seminar series for more than ten years. 

The purpose of this series is to showcase research projects that highlight the work of interdisciplinary teams and demonstrate the synergistic effects of interdisciplinary collaboration. Our speakers include researchers from the Columbia University community and guest lecturers from the greater New York City area and around the world. All seminars focus on an area of infection prevention research.
