about cmmid

Our focus is on understanding and predicting the epidemiology of infectious diseases so that more effective control programmes can be devised. Researchers are developing and applying mathematical models to a range of infections including HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, HPV, tuberculosis, hepatitis C, influenza, rotavirus, measles, varicella, pneumococcal disease, Hib, malaria and sleeping sickness.

More fundamental research includes developing methods to measure underlying contact patterns and sample hard-to-reach populations (such as drug users), developing methods to efficiently fit complex mathematical models to data, and the integration of epidemiological models with economic analysis. We are also working on novel methods to monitor flu by using the internet. The cmmid is actively engaged in developing links with other modelling groups and members of the cmmid include mathematical modellers working at the HPA and the Royal Veterinary College

 

About Us

We teach a module for LSHTM masters students and run an annual short course on mathematical modelling which is aimed at professionals looking for an introduction to the field.
