MIDAS

MODELS OF INFECTIOUS DISEASE AGENT STUDY​

MIDAS is a global network of scientists and practitioners who develop and use computational, statistical and mathematical models to improve the understanding of infectious disease dynamics. Through education, research, service, and sharing of ideas, the MIDAS network aims to advance science to improve global preparedness and response.

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.

Everything you always wanted to know about #monkeypox, but were afraid to ask.

Listen to the @MCIDBern Twitter Spaces with our experts @firefox66, Summermatter, @AsisaVolz, @nicolamlow, @flovolution, and @C_Althaus.

Wednesday, June 29, 6-7pm (CEST): https://twitter.com/i/spaces/1jMJgepbZWPKL

The VIMC and the University of Cambridge are running an intensive 6-day short course on Mathematical Modelling for Vaccine-preventable Diseases for participants from low and middle-income countries. Full details here - https://www.vaccineimpact.org/2022-06-27-VIMC-shortcourse/

ICYMI - video is now online, with monkeypox genomics updates from @trvrb and @anaweil @lea_starita's overview of Husky Coronavirus Testing program @UW, including the lab innovations that permitted rapid scale-up in testing during the Omicron surge. https://youtu.be/VjeCvHuAeYE https://twitter.com/ericchowmd/status/1537928490086850565
