The objective is to learn principles underlying the spread and control of infectious diseases in populations. The course combines case-studies with computational simulations labs that illustrate the principles. We will combine lectures, group learning, and hands-on computer labs. Students interested in infectious diseases, population health, food animals and wildlife are encouraged to take the course.
CBS 595-003 Infectious Disease Modeling
The objective of this graduate course is to introduce mathematical modeling as a research tool to study infectious diseases. This is a highly interdisciplinary graduate course. In previous years, students with very different backgrounds and prior knowledge of mathematics and biology have taken the course.
