Super Spreader Seminar Series (SSSS)

HQP Organizing Committee

Dr. Joseph Baafi (Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador), Dr. Suzan Farhang Sardroodi (University of Manitoba), Dr. Shivdeep Singh Hayer (University of Guelph), Dr. Jeta Molla (York University), Dr. Pei Yuan (York University), and IT support by Steven Chen (York University)

The OMNI-RÉUNIS Super Spreader Seminar Series (SSSS) encourages Highly Qualified Personnel (HQPs, including postdocs, and graduate students), to present their research, promote their ideas, share their research experience, and establish connections among the various branches of the network. It is a platform to spread scientific knowledge about One Health research framework and showcase research progress of the 30+ OMNI-RÉUNIS HQPs within the network’s scientific research community. This bi-weekly seminar will be beneficial for knowledge transfer among OMNI-RÉUNIS and the Emerging Infectious Disease Modelling (EIDM) networks and collaborating scientific community.
