The Summer Institute in Statistics and Modeling in Infectious Diseases (SISMID) is designed to introduce infectious disease researchers to modern methods of statistical analysis and mathematical modeling and to introduce statisticians and mathematical modelers to the statistical and dynamic problems posed by modern infectious disease data.
Dates: July 10-26, 2017
Participants choose from a series of two-and-a-half day modules and design a program best-suited to their interests (most participants take two or three modules). Individuals attending the institute receive certificates of course completion in recognition of their participation.
SISMID is supported by the NIH National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) under award number 5R25GM089694.
A limited number of registration-fee and travel scholarships are available for students and postdocs.
