Beginning in 2021, Friday Morning conference will be held from 9:15am-10:15AM each Friday of the academic year. 

UNC CFAR partners with the clinical division of infectious diseases and the Institute for Global Health & Infectious Disease on a weekly conference series featuring distinguished clinicians and scientists from UNC, local universities, and other national and international institutions. The topics are varied and appeal to not only infectious disease specialists, but also professionals in epidemiology, public health, microbiology, biostatistics and other global health-related disciplines. To suggest a speaker, please conference coordinator Dr. Arlene Seña-Soberano or Kathy James.

**The conference is now offered online via Zoom. An email with Zoom link is sent out weekly; sign up here for email notices.
