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
