Joint UNIversities Pandemic and Epidemiological Research

We run a virtual weekly seminar series on a Wednesday 14:00-15:00 (UK time) during academic term-time. The aim of the seminars is to provide an informal environment for researchers working at the interface between mathematical modelling, infectious disease control and public policy to share current research and engage in open discussion on current topics of interest within the research community. The series covers a range of interdisciplinary topics related to understanding infectious disease dynamics and control. Speakers come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and include both those directly involved in JUNIPER as well as those whose work is closely related to topics. Previous speakers include members of government, public health experts, medics, computer scientists and mathematical modellers.

How to attend

Our seminar series is open to all. If you are interested in attending our seminars please join up to our mailing list here. We send out information about future talks including the zoom link to join the seminar as well as recordings if you are unable to attend the live session (please note that recordings are subject to speaker agreement).

Give a talk

We welcome talks from any researcher whose work fits within the research remit of the JUNIPER network (link to relevant page). You do not need to have any previous engagement with JUNIPER to give a talk. We encourage talks from early career researchers (PhD students, postdocs and new group leaders), particularly those interested in engaging more with JUNIPER. If you are interested in giving a JUNIPER seminar please contact our programme manager on to discuss further.
