The Analytics and Modeling Track aims to expand CDC’s capacity to employ modeling and other analytical approaches to grow our understanding of existing and emerging diseases, public health strategies, and response activities. This work helps ensure that science informs action to protect people from many health, safety, and security threats. Fellows use the skills learned in this track to assist multiple CDC centers, institutes, and offices (CIOs) on projects such as forecast development and evaluation, intervention assessment, and epidemiological characterization.
The inaugural class of the Modeling Track began August 2021, with a total number of 21 fellows. The majority of the fellows are assigned to the Atlanta CDC campuses, with the exception of one in Washington, D.C. and another in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The inaugural class is composed of a substantial number of women (67%), ethnic minorities (52%), and non-U.S. citizens (29%).
