課程概述

This course is intended for undergraduate and graduate students who have the desire to understand the basic concepts of mathematical modeling and its applications to the epidemiological study of infectious diseases. The course will provide students to discover how mathematical concepts help us understand the spread of infectious pathogens through dynamic populations. Students will explore existing mathematical models in practical computer lab sessions, and also learn how to determine the key parameters involved in the spread of pathogens, the impact of changes in these parameters, and discuss the public health policy implications. Through discussions of published papers, students will learn how to critically evaluate a modeling paper, and how to communicate the modeling results with policy-makers.
 

課程目標
The course has two major objectives: (1) introduce basic principles of mathematical modeling methods and (2) emphasize the significance of simulation and modeling to the study of infectious disease epidemiology. 
課程要求
Weekly readings, written assignments and participation in class discussion and computer lab. There is a take-home mid-term exam for evaluating students the ability of implementing a disease transmission model. Students also need to complete term project addressing mathematical or computer modeling in one of infectious diseases of their choice.
