This course covers the use of mathematical and computational approaches to study infectious diseases. We will discuss models that address both the dynamics of infectious disease spread through populations and the dynamics of pathogens inside an infected individual. Students will learn how to build and analyze models for a variety of human and animal diseases. We will look at the impact of interventions on disease outcomes. Students will learn how to interpret results of modeling studies to make informed public health policy decisions.
