Work within the mathematical epidemiology subgroup focuses on important questions about infectious diseases at multiple scales. Population-level modeling is used to investigate emergence, transmission, and spread of infectious disease and to help us better understand how control measures can reduce transmission. Within-host modeling helps us investigate how cellular-level changes influence infectiousness of pathogens and how treatments can impact that infectiousness. In this mini-symposium, we feature work across a broad spectrum of infectious disease modeling research and highlight work that members of the SMB Mathematical Epidemiology subgroup have been doing over the past year.
