About Us

What is the CGSA?

  • We are a social support and professional development group for graduate students in Penn State’s Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics (CIDD), a “virtual” center bringing together theoreticians and empirical scientists in a wide variety of disciplines to collaborate and innovate in the area of infectious disease research.
  • We hold a weekly journal club, invite speakers for the CIDD seminar series, organize workshops, participate in outreach events and much more.
  • We serve as an administrative and bureaucratic voice at our university for members and non-members alike.
  • We are PENN STATE!

  • Come to journal club for down-and-dirty disease discussions.
