The NSF-funded Research Coordination Network (RCN) project, 'Evaluating the impacts of a changing ocean on management and ecology of infectious marine disease', hosts a series of workshops that address aspects of marine diseases. The workshop, 'Marine Disease Modeling and Transmission,' the fourth in this series, was designed to evaluate and implement approaches for modeling marine diseases, with emphasis on disease transmission processes. This workshop was held on 11-15 May 2015, at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA.  

Several members of the Aquatic Health Sciences department participated including Ryan Carnegie, Jeff Shields and Andrew Wargo as well as Zoemma Warshafsky, a student advised by Andrew Wargo. 

Ryan Carnegie gave a presentation entitled 'Long-term evolution of virulence' and Andrew Wargo gave a presentation entitled 'Impacts of disease management practices on the virulence evolution and transmission of a salmonid virus'.
