Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study (MIDAS) is a collaboration of research and informatics groups to develop computational models of the interactions between infectious agents and their hosts, disease spread, prediction systems and response strategies. The models will be useful to policymakers, public health workers and other researchers who want to better understand and respond to emerging infectious diseases. If a disease outbreak occurs, the MIDAS network may be called upon to develop specific models to aid public officials in their decision-making processes. More information about MIDAS is available at the links below.
The Modeling of Infectious Disease Agent Study Research Projects (U01), Modeling of Infectious Disease Agent Study Information Technology Resource (U24) and Modeling of Infectious Disease Agent Study Centers of Excellence (U54) programs were recently announced.
