Introducing FEAD: The Field Epidemiology Abstract Database

TEPHINET is thrilled to launch the Field Epidemiology Abstract Database (FEAD), a one-of-a-kind trove of global knowledge in field epidemiology.

Visitors to FEAD can search more than 1,000 abstracts presented at Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) conferences*. Access to FEAD is free and open to the public.

“We hope that the availability of FEAD will spark curiosity about field epidemiology as a science, help researchers around the world generate ideas for publication and collaboration, and increase the visibility of the work of field epidemiologists as people search the Internet for related topics,” says Dr. Angela Hilmers, TEPHINET’s Chief Scientist.

Search for abstracts based on:

  • Topic
  • Region
  • Country
  • Language (FEAD currently supports abstracts in English, Portuguese, and Spanish)
  • Year of study
  • Conference
  • Presentation type (oral or poster)
  • Keywords (free text search)

For abstract authors:

  1. Did you present an abstract at a TEPHINET Conference or FETP International Night since December 2016? If so, check FEAD for your abstract and share it!
  2. FEAD is here to help increase the visibility of your work. If you have an abstract in FEAD that has been converted to a full article, email abstracts [at] tephinet [dot] org with the link to the article. We will place the link on the abstract page.

Send us your thoughts!

We would love to hear from you! Please email any questions or comments on the FEAD to abstracts [at] tephinet [dot] org.

*At this time, FEAD is intended only for abstracts from TEPHINET conferences and regional FETP networks’ conferences. TEPHINET will update FEAD as new abstracts are presented at these conferences. Regional FETP networks should stay tuned for instructions from TEPHINET on how to incorporate their conferences’ abstracts into FEAD.

Please note that FEAD, like the rest of the TEPHINET website, is best viewed on the following browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge. We do not recommend using Internet Explorer, which Microsoft no longer supports.
