CENTRE OF RESEARCH EXCELLENCE IN INFECTIOUS DISEASES MODELLING TO INFORM PUBLIC HEALTH POLICY
Grant number: 1078068 | Funding period: 2014 - 2020
Infectious diseases pose a global challenge, with substantial human and economic costs. Mathematical models provide valuable frameworks to assess likely benefits of interventions to control infection spread and burden. Leveraging existing NHMRC support, we will expand modeling capability to inform infectious disease control policy in Australia and our region. Focus areas include vaccine preventable disease, respiratory viruses and emerging pathogens, supported by innovative methods development.
