Research themes

Research themes provide the main structure of CMMID. They aim to facilitate collaboration among like minded researchers within LSHTM and beyond. 

Within CMMID mathematical models are used to:

  • Understand the natural history and epidemiology of infectious diseases
  • Predict the course of epidemics
  • Assess different policy options

We also conduct methodological research on:

  • New statistical approaches to fit complex models to data
  • New methods to survey hard to reach populations
