Description:

Please join the Institute for Global Health for our "First Friday" Seminar Series! This webinar will be available through Zoom, and registration is required in order to receive information to join. All that register will receive a link that is unique to them.

Joining us are Jaline Gerardin, PhD and Sarah Cobey, PhD, who have been working with the state of Illinois since March of 2020 to forecast COVID-19 epidemic trends, predict upcoming hospital capacity needs, and stand up a sentinel surveillance system.

Jaline Gerardin is an Assistant Professor in Preventive Medicine at Northwestern. In addition to their COVID-19 work, her group works with malaria-endemic countries to develop data-driven national strategic plans to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality. Sarah Cobey is an Associate Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago. She runs a computational research group that investigates how the host adaptive immune response coevolves with respiratory pathogens, from the dynamics of individual infections to pandemics.

The Institute for Global Health Seminar Series is held the first Friday of each month, September through July, and will feature the research and ideas of outstanding global health leaders at Feinberg, the larger Northwestern community, and beyond.
