The Fluids and Health Conference and its first iteration of 2019 themed the "Fluid Dynamics of Disease Transmission" aims to bring together experts from diverse scientific, health and public policy communities for the exchange of ideas and to catalyze novel directions in combating infectious diseases. Experts in the mathematical, physical and health domains will give in-depth invited lectures.
One week will include lectures in human health from clinical medicine, public health to infection control. The other week will include lectures in ecology and food safety as they pertain to infection control and management in agriculture and food safety. The two weeks will include lectures in fluid dynamics and mathematical modeling pertaining to the challenges of disease transmission, dispersal and persistence of contaminants in human health and food safety.
The long-term objective of this conference is to develop a community of researchers focused on the development of new fundamental insights necessary to achieve rigorous science-based for innovative technology development and recommendations for public health and food safety.
