The Center for Statistics and Quantitative Infectious Diseases is program that is part of the MIDAS network. Our main interest is in quantitative methodologic developments related to scientific and public health aspects of infectious diseases, including epidemiology, evaluating interventions, immunology, and vaccinology. Our research focuses on prevention and intervention in infectious diseases of global health importance, as well as emerging infectious diseases, such as pandemic influenza. The quantitative methods include statistical, epidemiologic, mathematical modeling, computational biology, and bioinformatic methods. As part of the MIDAS network, our group is partially supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences at NIH.
