A series of online short meetings to learn, share and stay connected
In this challenging time where countless work places, universities, schools and public places have temporarily closed their doors and everything’s a bit unknown, we hope that continuing professional conversations online can provide a practical way to further knowledge-sharing, close some of the gaps left where ongoing research has been paused, and provide mutual support. ISNTD Connect is a forum and series of short meetings online, where researchers and professionals in the fields of tropical diseases and public health are able to present and discuss ongoing research and topics. These online meetings are open to all and free, and are scheduled to last about 30-60 minutes. Please sign up to attend or speak! We are now calling for submissions of proposals for a short talk or panel discussion, focusing on all the major aspects of infectious and neglected tropical diseases, including basic science, diagnostics, therapeutics, drug discovery, WASH, vector control, science communication & public engagement, public health.
Keep safe and let's keep the science community connected!
