The 18th Annual St. Jude/PIDS Pediatric Infectious Diseases Research Conference will take place March 8-9, 2019 at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

The program will feature a "Frontiers in Infectious Diseases" symposium, with presentations from leading investigators in infectious diseases and microbiology. In addition, a series of career development workshops will be available, including sessions on career paths in global health, industry, clinical research and education.
