Since the possibility for new MIDAS members to join went live in early December 2019, 61 new members have joined our network! We are very excited that so many colleagues are interested to strengthen our infectious disease modeling community. New members include 26 faculty, 30 students, and 5 postdocs from the US, UK, China, India, and other countries. We are especially pleased that so many students joined, as our network provides great opportunities for training in infectious disease modeling and opportunities for networking with world-renowned researchers! New members and their projects will soon appear on the MIDAS website.
