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. M. Elizabeth Halloran serves as the Director of SISMID.
The goal of SISMID is to strengthen the statistical and genetic proficiency and career preparation of scholars from all backgrounds, especially those from groups historically underrepresented in STEM such as racial and ethnic minority groups, low income, first generation college students, veterans, and differently abled and 2SLGBTQ groups.
Tentative dates: July 13-29, 2020
- The status of SISMID 2020 is uncertain. Funding has not been secured so SISMID 2020 may not take place. We will post another update by March 5,2020.

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). Modules run all day Monday/Tuesday and Wednesday morning OR Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday/Friday. Individuals attending the institute receive certificates of course completion in recognition of their participation.
