Fundamentals of Microbiology and Infectious Disease
A distance learning opportunity
June 9 and 14, 2021
12:30 – 3:00pm (CDT)

 

 

Join us Wednesday, June 9 and Monday, June 14 from 12:30-3:00pm CDT for the opportunity to participate in protocol review, facilities planning, and any other risk assessment activities, but are unsure as to the actual nature of the disease risks of microbiological agents. Biological safety and risk assessment will not be covered in this course. The proposed topics will cover infectious agents, virulence factors, pathogenicities, host-microbe interactions, susceptibility, modes of transmission, and the changes seen in the microbial world. If you don’t know the difference between a TCID50, PFU, or ID50; or why HBV is stable in dried blood and HIV is not; or why influenza is an inhalation hazard; or why public health officials advocate flu shots each year—then this course is for you.
