Venue: online 

Recordings of the online conference are now available on the MIDAS YouTube channel.

This conference is for undergraduate students or students in a post baccalaureate program from underrepresented groups who have an interest in public health and mathematical modeling of infectious diseases. The conference will introduce students to modeling methods and familiarize students with modeling resources of the MIDAS Network.  

This conference will include: 

  • Scientific talks from MIDAS researchers and graduate students who use infectious disease epidemiology and mathematical modeling to study infectious diseases;  
  • Hands-on sessions* where students will have the opportunity to practice the concepts and skills they are learning using MIDAS resources, and; 
  • Professional development and networking opportunities  

*Depending on your background, hands-on sessions will be in R, Excel, or SAS. 

Students must satisfy all the requirements below. Applicants must:

  • Be U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals or permanent residents of the U.S.
  • Be undergraduate students or students in a post-baccalaureate program
  • Be from an underrepresented group as defined by the NIH, which includes:
    • Racial and ethnic groups that are underrepresented, such as:
      • Blacks or African Americans
