Dear listmembers



Please forward the advert below about the LSHTM-HPA infectious disease modelling shortcourse to anyone who may be interested.



Many thanks and apologies for any cross-posting. 



 



 



 



 



 



 2 week intensive course on:



 



"INTRODUCTION TO INFECTIOUS DISEASE MODELLING AND ITS APPLICATIONS"



 



organized jointly between the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and the Health Protection Agency Centre for Infections, UK



 



Venue: London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine



 



Course dates: 27th June - 8th July 2011



 



Cost: 1,945



 



Summary:



Mathematical modelling is increasingly applied to predict the future incidence and control of infectious diseases.  Applications include predicting the impact of control strategies, such as vaccination or treatment, against pandemic influenza, measles, HIV, vector-borne diseases and veterinary problems. Modelling was used extensively in the UK during the swine flu pandemic to monitor the extent of ongoing transmission and the potential impact of interventions such as school closures and vaccination.



 



This two week intensive course introduces professionals working on infectious diseases in human or animal populations to this exciting and expanding area.  The emphasis of the course is on developing a conceptual understanding of the basic methods and on their practical application, rather than the manipulation of mathematical equations. The course provides numerous practical examples, including real-time modelling of outbreaks, pandemic influenza, sexually transmitted infections, HIV, vector-borne and animal diseases, as well as tuberculosis, measles and rubella.  The material from this popular and successful course is further complemented by the recently published book "An Introduction to Infectious Disease Modelling" which was written by two of the course organizers (Emilia Vynnycky and Richard White) - see www.anintroductiontoinfectiousdiseasemodelling.com <http://www.anintroductiontoinfectiousdiseasemodelling.com> .



 



By the end of the course, participants will have deepened their current understanding of infectious disease epidemiology and have gained an understanding and practical experience of the basics of infections disease modelling, which will be important in their future work. 



 



 



 



Who should attend:



The course is designed for individuals interested in expanding their knowledge of the techniques for analysing and interpreting epidemiological data on infectious diseases and for predicting the impact of control programmes, including medical and health professionals, policy makers, veterinary scientists, health economists, medical statisticians and infectious disease researchers.



 



Specialist mathematical training is not a prerequisite.  However, individuals with degrees in mathematical disciplines working on some aspect of infectious disease dynamics and/or control, who wish to learn about the potential of infectious disease modelling will also benefit.
