Introduction to Mathematical Models of the Epidemiology & Control of Infectious Diseases

28. Mai 2019 at 09:16
9th to 20th September 2019, London, United Kingdom. 

Imperial College LondonIn recent years our understanding of infectious-disease epidemiology and control has been greatly increased through mathematical modelling. With infectious diseases frequently dominating news headlines, public health and pharmaceutical industry professionals, policy makers and infectious disease researchers increasingly need to understand the transmission patterns of infectious diseases.

This allows them to interpret and critically evaluate both epidemiological data and the findings of mathematical modelling studies.

Our course has been taught since 1990 by leading researchers in infectious disease epidemiology, who provide a thorough, but accessible and demystifying introduction to the essential elements of modelling and an update of the most practically-relevant aspects of this fast-moving field.

The course is revised every year to reflect the most recent developments in the field. Topics include HIV, TB, malaria, Ebola, pandemic influenza, health economics, vaccination programmes, stochastic models & more.

This course is organised by the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology Imperial College London.
