The CINET project is developing a cyberinfrastructure middleware to support Network Science. This middleware gives Network Scientists access to an unparalleled computational and analytic environment for research, education, and training.
Large-scale natural and human-initiated crises that affect significant population centers are important from the standpoint of national security, resilient design of cities, and the overall security and well being of society.
NDSSL has supported the DoD, NIH and other federal agencies during the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa by providing them analytical results, enabling policy makers to make more informed scientifically backed decisions and policies
Using mathematical and computational methods, the group is exploring the effects of human contact patterns in population areas on disease transmission dynamics and the effectiveness of particular response strategies.
A primary project of the CyberInfrastructure Group, PATRIC is one of five Bacterial Bioinformatics Resource Centers. Its information system is designed to support the biomedical research community’s work on bacterial infectious diseases via integration of vital pathogen information with rich data and analysis tools.
This research aims to improve public health policy and practice by incorporating social behavior into mathematical models of infectious disease spread and by providing a better understanding of how proposed health-related policies will work when put into practice.
