Infectious Disease Research: A Holistic Approach to Physiologic Data Collection and Model Development


Join Dr. Anna Honko and Dr. Doug Reed as they discuss methods and applications for infectious disease research including coronavirus-based illnesses. 

In this webinar, Dr. Anna Honko, Research Associate Professor, Microbiology at Boston University School of Medicine, provides a past-perspective overview of infectious disease research using telemetry as well as a preview of upcoming SARS-CoV-2 based approaches. Dr. Honko explores the need to maximize endpoints collected in non-human primates to draw better conclusions while supporting the Animal Rule and trigger-to-treat studies.   

Dr. Doug Reed, Associate Professor of Immunology at the University of Pittsburgh Center for Vaccine Research, provides examples using a multi-species approach to study COVID-19. In addition, Dr. Reed highlights post-exposure data analysis methods for telemetry and plethysmography to support translational research.

 

About DSI Events

Data Sciences International (DSI) is involved in over 60 events every year. These include scientific meetings such as industry trade shows, courses and seminars, workshops, as well as educational user groups and symposia all over the world.

DSI supported educational events are scientific meetings organized in cooperation with a local institution or society, pharmaceutical company, university, or local telemetry user group. Educational event meetings serve as an educational forum in which researchers can freely share current scientific information with their peers, students, and other interested scientists.

Common to the general theme of the meetings is the data collected through physiological monitoring of freely moving conscious laboratory animals made possible through the use of fully implantable telemetry technology.

Presentations and posters on the latest methods employed by the presenting researchers enable those attending to benefit from the as yet unpublished work of peers. Presentations can be on a wide range of related research topics including surgical implantation methods, data analysis methods, treatment effects of new pharmaceutical compounds, new animal models, behavioral and physiological interactions, basic research on physiological systems, and numerous other whole animal chronic monitoring research topics.

Meetings are held in classroom style with ample time allowed for questions and discussion among the participants. Typical audience sizes run from 40 to 120.
