The research and modeling team at IDM is focused on providing support to disease eradication programs and other global health endeavors through a variety of modeling and statistical approaches.
The Institute for Disease Modeling is committed to fundamental research in Applied Math for computational epidemiology. These methods have the potential to dramatically increase computational efficiency, enable new forms of analysis, and gain a deep understanding of dynamical processes.
The Epidemiology Section utilizes mathematical models and data analysis to understand the epidemiology, spatiotemporal patterns, clinical progression, and transmission routes of infectious diseases. We aim to find possible pathways for disease eradication with the current and future tools.
IDM’s HIV team provides modeling and quantitative analysis to support governments, NGOs, and researchers working to reduce HIV burden and transmission in generalized epidemic settings.
Transmitted by the bite of Anopheles mosquitoes, Plasmodium parasites are responsible for hundreds of millions of clinical malaria cases and more than a million deaths every year. The Institute for Disease Modeling is committed to supporting data-driven malaria control and elimination efforts through our research.
The Institute aims to support polio eradication efforts by conducting policy relevant research and computer simulations. We use advanced analytics and disease transmission models to project the impact of the strategies currently being used to fight the disease, as well as evaluate potential strategies before implementation.
IDM’s TB research develops multi-scale modeling tools to estimate the impact of new and existing strategies for preventing, diagnosing and treating TB. Research includes how to reach 2025 and 2035 global targets, evaluating pathways to care, and assessing TB/HIV co-infection and within-host disease dynamics.
the Institute for Disease Modeling (IDM) is the preeminent quantitative
analysis center shaping strategies and building innovative tools to accelerate
the eradication of infectious disease by the global health community.
