Leadership & Outreach

Center for Inference and Dynamics of Infectious Disease

Dr. Betz Halloran is director of the Center for Inference and Dynamics of Infectious Diseases (CIDID). The CIDID provides national and international leadership in computational, statistical, and mathematical research, education and outreach, and public health policy related to infectious diseases and interventions. The Center revolves around four major scientific research projects, one software development component, one policy studies component, and one training and outreach component. The research projects interact to provide multi-scale insight into the epidemiological, immunological and environmental determinants of transmission and evolution of infectious diseases, including, among others: influenza, dengue, cholera, polio, pertussis, rotavirus, Ebola, chikungunya, and Zika. Other participating institutions include the University of Washington, University of Florida, Northeastern University, University of Michigan, Emory University, University of Georgia, Ohio State University, and University of California at Irvine.

Summer Institute for Statistics and Modeling in Infectious Diseases

Dr. Betz Halloran co-founded and directs the Summer Institute in Statistics and Modeling in Infectious Diseases (SISMID). The SISMID started in 2009 and is funded by NIH/NIGMS. SISMID introduces infectious disease researchers to modern methods of statistical analysis and mathematical modeling and introduces statisticians and mathematical modelers to the statistical and dynamic problems posed by modern infectious disease data.
