This research team is examining the effects of temperature on mosquito life history and vector competence, which is included in deciding the model parameters and structure.
Principal Investigator: Scott Nuismer, Ph.D., University of Idaho
This research group is working to develop a mathematical model for the evolution of transmissible vaccines. This team is also testing the results using an experimental viral system.
Principal Investigators: Harel Dahari, Ph.D., Loyola University Chicago; Basmattee Boodram, Ph.D., University of Illinois at Chicago; and Jonathan Ozik, Ph.D., University of Chicago
The PIs work to develop a data-driven agent-based model of daily risk activities for persons who inject drugs to identify the most effective intervention strategies for elimination of hepatitis C.
Principal Investigators: Fengzhu Sun, Ph.D., University of Southern California; and Nathan Ahlgren, Ph.D., Clark University
This research group is working on the development of statistical and computational methods to identify viral sequences and virus-host interactions from metagenomics sequencing data and to investigate the effect of viruses on complex diseases.
Principal Investigator: Natalie Dean, PhD, University of Florida
The aim of this research is to develop and evaluate a series of innovative and adaptive vaccine trial design strategies tailored for outbreaks of emerging infectious diseases.
Principal Investigator: Laura White, Ph.D., Boston University
This research group develops novel approaches to monitor the incidence and transmission of Tuberculosis (TB). This will enable our understanding of the spread of TB in populations and areas where the burden of TB disease is greatest.
Principal Investigator: Steven Bellan, Ph.D., University of Georgia
This research group takes a broad quantitative perspective to address applied questions in infectious disease epidemiology. Their research spans multiple pathogen systems (HIV, Ebola, anthrax, rabies) by integrating mathematical and statistical models with empirical data to understand infectious disease processes and how to control them.
Principal Investigators: Richard Zimmerman, M.D., and Kenneth Smith, M.D., University of Pittsburgh
These scientists are developing methods for Markov cohort decision analysis, equation-based dynamic transmission modeling, and agent-based modeling, all aimed at optimization of vaccine selection strategies, streamlining of vaccination schedules, and evaluation and optimization of influenza vaccination policy.
Principal Investigator: Kirk Dombrowski, Ph.D., University of Nebraska, Lincoln
This research team is working to build, test, and implement a cost-effective mobile/wearable cross-platform continuous time interaction data acquisition system operated via a web-based administration service.
Principal Investigator: Justin Lessler, Ph.D., Johns Hopkins University.
The PI works on real-time dengue disease forecasting by developing and evaluating inferential methods to evaluate the spatiotemporal distribution of dengue.
Principal Investigator: Cristina Lanzas, Ph.D., North Carolina State University
This research group is developing and analyzing mathematical models that address relevant mechanisms and spatial heterogeneity associated with environmental transmission. Using both queuing theory and spacial agent-based models, this team is evaluating the success of environmental interventions, and to use optimal control theory to identify preferred interventions.
Principal Investigator: Joshua Herbeck, Ph.D., University of Washington, Seattle
This team is developing a novel modeling framework that integrates HIV evolutionary processes into mathematical models of HIV epidemiology and vaccination to enable more accurate predictions of vaccine impact and improved vaccine design.
Principal Investigators: Justin V. Remais, Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley; Howard Chang, Ph.D., and Lance Waller, Ph.D., Emory University
This research group is developing statistical techniques for integrating data from multiple surveillance systems; developing methods for simulating and optimizing surveillance networks to detect existing and emerging infectious diseases under changing epidemiological conditions; examining how surveillance systems perform under different configurations, and estimating the optimal allocation of surveillance resources under various constraints.
Principal Investigators: Achla Marathe, Ph.D., and Kaja Abbas, Ph.D., Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
This research team is conducting systems analysis of social pathways of epidemics to reduce health disparities by incorporating social behavior into mathematical models of infectious disease transmission dynamics, with a focus on influenza like illness.
Principal Investigator: Shweta Bansal, Ph.D., Georgetown University
The PI works to characterize the relationship between behavioral factors like vaccine hesitancy and the re-emergence of vaccine-preventable diseases.
