Maths versus microbes: fighting smarter against epidemics

Thursday 1st March 2018 @ 19:00

Non-Member: £12.00 ; Staff: £5.00 ; Student: £3.00

Professor Steven Riley, Professor of Infectious Disease Dynamics, School of Public Health

It is with some considerable reluctance that we have decided to postpone this event, prompted by the weather conditions and the concerns already expressed by some members about getting back home after the lecture.

It is really difficult to second guess the weather but most forecasters are saying that there is a high chance of considerably more snow with low temperatures and this has prompted our decision.
We are planning to make arrangements for Professor Riley to give his talk later in the year and we will of course advise you of the date and I hope you will be able to attend.
If you were planning to attend I am sorry to cause disappointment.

After the 2014 Ebola outbreak and in the centenary year of the influenza pandemic of 1918, understanding how infectious diseases spread and developing strategies to contain them is crucial on a crowded planet.

Optionally followed by supper (this can be booked on the event booking form).
After the lecture a Friends' Table has been reserved at a local restaurant to entertain the speaker and for any of the audience who would like to join us to continue the evening's discussion. A two-course fixed price supper is served including wine, coffee and service charge.

Venue: SAF Building, Imperial College London
