Join us for a transformative three-day course on Digital Epidemiology in July 2024!

Are you ready to revolutionise public health surveillance and response? This course is your gateway to mastering the real-time integration of clinical, laboratory, and genomic information. This immersive experience combines theory with hands-on practice, equipping you with the skills needed for early outbreak detection, syndromic surveillance, and predictive modelling.
