Throughout the year, the LaMontagne Center for Infectious Disease hosts a number of events where faculty, students, researchers and members of the public can engage with critical issues in infectious disease, ranging from new research into prevention and treatment to professional development discussions linked to emerging opportunities in the field.
Our seminar series provides opportunities to hear from researchers both within the UT Austin community and from other institutions about new research related to the LaMontagne Center’s core mission.
The ongoing research and professional development speaker series allows for ongoing discussion among graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and others wishing to learn more about career and skill-building opportunities in the field.
Our seminal, once-a-year public lecture, the LaMontagne Lecture in Infectious Disease brings leading players from the global research stage to the UT Austin campus to discuss pressing challenges and exciting developments in the world of infectious disease.
