The goal of the Division of Ecoimmunology and Disease Ecology (DEDE) is to facilitate communication, collaboration, research, and data sharing among eco-immunologists and disease ecologists. We do this by co-sponsoring several symposia each year and sharing opportunities via the division’s Twitter page (@SICB_DEDE). The division also promotes mentoring and training of students and early career investigators, through mentoring programs including a mentor-mentee meet and greet carried out during the meeting, as well as through various awards for student presentations.

News & Announcements
The American Society of Parasitologists invites members of SICB interested in parasite-host interactions to check out their resources on home page http://amsocparasit.org/ and find them on Facebook. The Journal of Parasitology publishes many articles that should be of interest to the members of SICB.
Also see the Disease Ecology section for the The Ecological Society of America (ESA) for opportunities of interest to SICB DEDE members: http://esa.org/disease/

If you work in collections take this quick survey to help us understand how diceCT and molecular techniques contribute to the science done in your museum!! Thanks!! https://twitter.com/diceCT/status/1366083336645578752
@SICB_ Can you help us make a final call to biological collections personnel?
Are contrast-enhancing bio-imaging tools + molecular sampling techniques compatible? Tell us what you think:
take our short, anonymous survey & RT! #museumarchive #SICB2021
On the last day of #SICB2021, I had a pleasant surprise! I am so honored to have received the Audience Choice Award. Thank you so much to everyone that voted for my talk!

Have you selected your favorite presentations for the Audience Choice Award? If not, this is your friendly reminder to do it before Friday, 26 February at 11:59 (HST) 👏
Closing my collaboration to #SICB2021, we have the poster from @StefannyTiton @florestefr comparing how toads face an immune challenge during the day vs. night. Check it out!

Trying to understand better how toads fight pathogens in their natural habitat, Patrício submitted toads to an LPS challenge in the field. Check his poster!

Ever wonder what an optimal immune system should look like, given all the worms and germs and costs and trade-offs? My lab is recruiting a postdoc to study immune system evolution using computational approaches!

I think you heard that stress is a bad thing, and one of the consequences is decreased immunity. But did you know acute stressors can be immunoenhancing? Check @StefannyTiton talk #SICB2021 @SICB_DEDE
