INTRODUCTION TO INFECTIOUS DISEASE MODELLING AND ITS APPLICATIONS
Organized by: The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the Health Protection Agency Centre for Infections, UK | Venue: United Kingdom: London | Contents: Mathematical modelling is increasingly being applied to interpret and predict the dynamics and control of infectious diseases. Applications include predicting the impact of vaccination strategies against infections and determining optimal control strategies against influenza, HIV, vector-borne diseases and veterinary problems. This two week intensive course is intended to introduce professionals working on infectious diseases in human or animal populations to this exciting and expanding area. The emphasis will be on developing a conceptual understanding of the basic methods and on their practical application, rather than the manipulation of mathematical equations.
