Study of Infectious Diseases

Under the leadership of Dr. Helen Davies, Professor of Microbiology in the School of Medicine and our hallmate, the Study of Infectious Diseases floor participates in a variety of infectious disease-focused activities, including faculty lectures and dinners, hospital infectious disease management meetings, and museum trips. In addition, residents in this program have access to a wealth of science resources across the university. Together with the Women in Science residential program, residents lead biweekly brunch meetings with Dr. Davies to discuss emerging infectious diseases and recent progress of women in science. These two programs are located on the 2nd floor of Rodney/Coxe/EF Smith. Even though residents come with a diverse background and set of interests, they are united by a common passion for different areas of science and/or infectious diseases. Because of this, the hall very quickly develops into a close-knit and supportive community of friends that lasts long beyond their time in Ware.
