Where the bugs are: Full coverage of APIC 2013 in Fort Lauderdale

January 12th, 2015

Follow our live coverage via news alerts, tweets and this very blog as we cover the landmark 40th annual conference of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) June 8-10 in Fort Lauderdale.

With some 2,500 infection preventionists expected to be on hand, look for coverage of case studies, keynotes, outbreak investigations and some strange and interesting findings among the 300-plus poster presentations.

Following a virtual who’s who of keynote speakers -- Gerberding, Haley, Larson, Maki, Wenzel – virus hunter Nathan Wolfe will close the meeting with his vision of pandemic forecasting in the shrinking global village. By focusing on the zoonotic origins of many epidemic diseases— HIV, SARS, hantavirus, et al -- Wolfe is pursuing early detection of emerging infections before they are already on a plane in a human with high fever.
