The Kansas Vaccine Institute of the University of Kansas is pleased to host the 17th annual Great Plains Infectious Disease Meeting on November 9 and 10th, 2018, at the School of Pharmacy located on KU's West Campus. In the past sixteen years, this regional meeting has attracted researchers from many Great Plains states including North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Illinois. It has been an important platform for faculty across the region for sharing interesting new research and building research collaborations between universities.

On the evening of the first day, a reception and dinner will be followed by keynote presentations. The second day will be devoted to oral presentations and a poster session. Deadlines for conference registration and abstract submission are November 6, 2018 at 8:00 am.
