Global Change at the Nexus of Climate, Biodiversity and Disease

August 8, 2022 9AM - 5PM

Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, Seminar Room - UBC

When: August 8th, 2022 | 9AM – 5PM (PST)
Registration deadline: July 25, 2022
Where: Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, Seminar Room – University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia

Climate change, biodiversity loss, and disease emergence are the most pressing environmental challenges of our time. While the pairwise interactions between climate, biodiversity and disease are well documented, we lack a framework that integrates all three and that recognizes the powerful positive and negative feedbacks between them. This symposium will illustrate recent findings on mechanisms that connect climate change, biodiversity, and disease across multiple disciplines.

This is a series of talks and discussions with invited guest speakers Drs. Lauren Buckley(UW), Allan Carroll (UBC), John Drake (UGA), John Gittleman (UGA), Claire Kremen (UBC), Sally Otto (UBC), Patrick Stephens (OSU), Lizzie Wolkovich (UBC), and more, which we hope will inspire the integration of research disciplines to better understand global change.

This event is free, but registration by July 25th is required for planning and catering purposes!
