Infectious Disease and Society

virtual seminar series

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.

As the Science & Society Programme has explored the issue of infectious diseases many times over the years, we are re-releasing a select number of related talks from our archive. We will also complement these previous talks with a series of new virtual lectures, reflecting on the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
