High-fidelity models used to simulate the spread of disease in healthcare facilities
What is Computational Epidemiology?
Our research involves the use of computational tools to model, simulate, visualize and, in general, understand the spread of disease. Our goal is to inform public and hospital policy decisions with respect to disease surveillance, disease prevention measures, and outbreak containment.
Support for this research was provided by a University of Iowa College of Medicine Translational Research Pilot Grant, by a National Institutes of Health Career Award
(P.M. Polgreen), by the National Institutes of Health grant NIAID-R21-AI081164, and by a contract from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
