Epidemic intelligence and risk analysis

Zika mosquite

This research aims to improve decision and policy making in public health by providing better frameworks for epidemic response.  We conduct research on epidemic modelling techniques, risk analysis science, evaluating current bioterrorism response systems, digital disease surveillance, predictive research and ethics in epidemics. This research is collaborative and multi-sectoral. A current focus is rapid intelligence systems for epidemic alert, and toward this, ISER is sponsoring a hackathon to enable students to form teams and develop such systems with guidance from the ISER investigators.
