MIDAS Network Visualization (Beta Release)

The MIDAS Network Visualization is a view of the MIDAS-related collaborations in graph form with two types of nodes: member nodes and institution nodes.  Member nodes represent MIDAS members and edges link to collaborators on an infectious disease paper published by the member.  Institution nodes represent institutions with members in the MIDAS network and edges link to all MIDAS members of the institution.

 

This is a beta release. Please explore the graph and send any comments/bugs/suggestions to questions@midasnetwork.us.  

 

Visit the MIDAS Network Visualization.

MIDAS membership is open to any infectious disease scientist, practitioner, or student who supports the mission and vision of the network. MIDAS is defined by broad inclusivity and diversity of its members, fostering collaboration to advance the science and application of infectious disease modeling. MIDAS members enjoy many advantages of being part of the network, free of charge.
