Livestream

RSVP

Join the Forum on Microbial Threats for a 1.5-day public workshop, “Breaking Down Silos: The Convergence of Infectious Diseases and Noncommunicable Diseases,” to be held on June 11 and 12. This workshop will explore the growing understanding of how microbes interact with and affect humans in multiple ways, ranging from affecting normal physiological functions to chronic diseases. The workshop will allow participants to gain a deeper understanding of how the distinction between infectious diseases and noncommunicable diseases is blurring and how this is extending to new approaches, such as the use of vaccination to treat certain cancers.

Invited speakers and discussants will contribute perspectives from government, academia, private, and nonprofit sectors at the global, national, and local levels. This workshop will be held at the Rockefeller Foundation in New York City (420 Fifth Avenue).

The workshop will also be livestreamed during the times below. Click here for the livestream.
