EMBL Science & Society Programme: Infectious Disease & Society Series

Our Science & Society Seminars create a platform for dialogue and debate, allowing EMBL to examine the ethical, legal, and social implications of scientific research.

This special seminar series focuses on the theme of “Infectious Disease and Society”, and seeks to explore the scientific and societal impact of infectious diseases. This examines not only the COVID-19 pandemic from a number of angles, but also other infectious diseases such as salmonella and malaria.

In this session, Dr. Claire Standley will present "International frameworks for infectious disease control: past, present and future".
