Closing schools for less than two weeks during a flu pandemic may increase infection rates and prolong an epidemic, according to an NIGMS-supported study.

December 07, 2009 • Harvard School of Public Health

A new NIGMS-supported study projects that the severity of the H1N1 flu during the autumn-winter flu season in the U.S. will likely be less than previously feared.

September 10, 2009 • Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

NIGMS-funded disease modelers calculate that a vaccination program that reaches 70 percent of the U.S. population would control pandemic influenza H1N1.

September 03, 2009 • Harvard School of Public Health

The Harvard School of Public Health establishes a new MIDAS Center of Excellence to model drug resistance, seasonal infectious diseases, and intervention allocation. 

September 03, 2009 • National Institute of General Medical Sciences

MIDAS adds new research expertise to simulate disease spread, evaluate different intervention strategies and help inform public health officials and policymakers.

August 03, 2009 • University of Texas at Austin

The latest research team to join the MIDAS effort will create models that simulate the complex interplay between human behavior and disease spread.

April 30, 2009 • Harvard University

NIGMS-supported researchers have found that small stockpiles of a secondary flu medication—if used early in local outbreaks—could extend the effectiveness of primary drug stockpiles during a global influenza pandemic.

August 08, 2008 • Research Triangle Institute

A team of NIGMS-supported researchers has devised a new method that enables the rapid and large-scale study of E. coli genes.

March 10, 2008 • Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Antiviral medications and social-distancing measures may be sufficient to mitigate a flu pandemic outbreak until a vaccine becomes available, according to a new NIGMS-supported study.

December 06, 2007 • National Institute of General Medical Sciences
A newly released software program will let health authorities at the site of an infectious disease outbreak quickly analyze data, speeding the detection of new cases and the implementation of effective interventions.
November 26, 2007 • Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Researchers funded by the NIGMS Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study report that cholera could be controlled inexpensively by orally vaccinating affected populations.

August 28, 2007 • Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Infectious-disease-modeling experts funded by NIGMS confirm that H5N1 avian influenza spread among a family in Indonesia in 2006.

July 23, 2007 • Research Triangle Park Institute

Maps developed as part of the Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study funded by NIGMS are being included in a book featuring the year's best examples of geographic information system cartography.

April 02, 2007 • National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

NIGMS-supported analyses of historic data show that cities that responded rapidly to the spread of flu in 1918 cut their mortality rates. The studies help plan for future pandemics.

February 01, 2007 • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Researchers involved in the NIGMS Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study contributed to interim guidance for slowing a pandemic flu outbreak.

January 16, 2007 • Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Antiviral drugs are effective in reducing the spread of the influenza virus among family members, report researchers funded by an NIGMS MIDAS grant.

April 03, 2006 • National Institute of General Medical Sciences

NIGMS-supported researchers develop a computer model to study how pandemic flu might spread in the United States and to test the effectiveness of possible intervention strategies.

February 21, 2006 • National Institute of General Medical Sciences

New research from scientists at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston and the University of Washington in Seattle suggests that containment can buy time to prepare, but containment alone is not enough to stop a flu pandemic from occurring.

February 01, 2006 • Harvard University

A Harvard–led research team was today awarded one of four new national Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study (MIDAS) grants from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS).

February 01, 2006 • University of California, Irvine

NIGMS has awarded $1.5 million over the next five years to a research team at the University of California, Irvine, to develop computer-based simulations of pandemic flu and other infectious disease outbreaks.
