The world is interconnected politically, financially, biologically, and socially. It is also connected through trade, travel, and commerce. All of these factors power the emergence of infectious diseases at the convergence of animal, human, and environmental health. Join participants from around the world including graduate and doctoral-level students, professional and young scientists, as well as government, universities and industry leaders in exploring these convergences. U of M Students can choose to participate in 2 to 3 weeks of the program, through several credit options. A limited number of $2,000 travel scholarships are available.

The application for the U of M Case Competition is now open through Nov 24, 8 a.m. In this unique opportunity, interdisciplinary teams of students will collaboratively analyze a real-world global health challenge with the goal of providing helpful strategic recommendations to move the case subject forward efficiently and effectively.
