Short course: Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases - Intermediate Level

Short course: Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases - Intermediate Level

Posted 21/06/2019

A 5-day course is aimed at participants with a basic understanding of infectious disease modelling and an aptitude for the R programming language. On completion participants will be able to write and analyse the dynamics of a simple mathematical model and use it to consider cost and intervention scenarios. The course is held at St Anne’s College, Oxford, 23-27 September 2019.

Mathematical modelling for tropical diseases

Mathematical modelling, particularly when combined with economical modelling, allows researchers and policy makers to determine the most effective interventions to fight infectious diseases such as malaria. We can use those models to explore ‘what ifs’ scenarios, at country or province level, saving more lives and limiting costs.  Prof Lisa White,   head of the Mathematical and Economic Modelling (MAEMOD) group based in Bangkok, MORU, explains in this recent podcast.

Human Antibodies that Slow Erythrocyte Invasion Potentiate Malaria-Neutralizing Antibodies

Human Antibodies that Slow Erythrocyte Invasion Potentiate Malaria-Neutralizing Antibodies

Posted 14/06/2019
Researchers from the University of Oxford, including NDM's Professor Simon Draper, along with partners from five institutions around the world, have identified the human antibodies that prevent the malaria parasite from entering blood cells, which may be key to creating a highly effective malaria vaccination. The results of the study were published yesterday in the journal Cell.
