Bryan Grenfell, the Kathryn Briger and Sarah Fenton Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Public Affairs, will present “What the Population Dynamics of Endemic Infections Can Tell Us About the Future of COVID-19 — and Vice Versa,” via Zoom webinar.

This event will be held online via Zoom webinar — register here in advance to receive a webinar link.

Grenfell will begin by discussing what the historical dynamics of endemic infections such as measles and influenza can — and cannot — tell us about COVID-19 epidemiology and control. He will then explore how huge global efforts in non-pharmaceutical interventions against COVID-19 have impacted other infections and what new light this sheds on their population dynamics.

Grenfell, who is affiliated with the HMEI Climate Change and Infectious Disease initiative, is the first speaker in the Spring 2021 HMEI Faculty Seminar Series, which is open to the public.
