Training activities in the MIDAS network

MIDAS Training Activities

In collaboration with the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics (CCDD) at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, the MCC is organizing the 8th conference to increase diversity in mathematical modeling and public health, on December 9-10, 2019, in Boston, MA. The MIDAS diversity conference provides a unique opportunity for undergraduate students from underrepresented groups to learn about infectious disease modeling methods and modeling resources developed by MIDAS.

MMED is a 2­‐week modeling clinic that emphasizes the use of data in understanding infectious disease dynamics. Participants conduct modeling projects informed by epidemiological data that address practical questions in a meaningful way. MMED is part of the  International Clinics on Infectious Disease Dynamics and Data Program (ICI3D) organized by a variety of faculty, including many MIDAS members, at South African Centre for Epidemiological Modelling and Analysis (SACEMA), the University of Georgia, the African Institute for Mathematial Sciences (AIMS), the Center for Inference and Dynamics of Infectious Diseases (CIDID), McMaster University, and the University of Florida. Applications for MMED 2020 will open in January 2020.
