CDC Hosts the International Conference on Emerging Infectious Diseases


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will host the International Conference on Emerging Infectious Diseases 2010 (ICEID 2010).


Since 1998, CDC has organized this conference in collaboration with public health partners including the American Society for Microbiology, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, the Association of Public Health laboratories, and the World Health Organization (WHO). The meeting brings together approximately 2,400 international scientists and public health professionals to foster an exchange of innovative research and ideas of public health importance pertaining to emerging infectious disease topics.

Major topics to be included are antimicrobial resistance, foodborne diseases, vector-borne and zoonotic diseases, vaccines, influenza, social determinants, global infection and control, molecular epidemiology, and many other topics related to the challenges posed by microbial threats both in the United States and abroad.

Some of the original CDC research includes:

  • Emerging threat of Candida bloodstream infections
  • Effectiveness of school closures in decreasing pandemic H1N1 infections
  • Foodborne outbreaks linked to salsa and guacamole, tenderized beef, undercooked lamb and more
  • 1 in 5 American adults report behaviors putting them at risk for hepatitis B
  • Emergence of Dengue virus in Florida
