Epidemiological evaluation of vaccines: efficacy, safety and policy

News
Anthony Scott and Stefan Flasche run an intensive 2-week course on The Epidemiological Evaluation of Vaccines at LSHTM.  In 2018, the course will run from 2rd to 13th July. Although there are several courses in vaccinology, few are aimed at advanced epidemiological tools for vaccine evaluation. This course fills that gap, providing an understanding of the methods used in the evaluation of vaccines from early clinical trials through to assessment of population impact, modelling, cost-effectiveness analysis, safety surveillance and policy. It aims to tackle issues in high, middle and low income countries.

5-day IBM course @ SACEMA (14-18 May 2018)

News
We are pleased to announce the third version of the course “Individual-based Modeling in Epidemiology: a Practical Introduction”. Individual-based model, also frequently referred to as agent-based models, are a relatively new class of models suited to gain insight into the population dynamics of complex systems that emerge from the characteristics and interactions of individuals in the population.   Summary:– Create your own individual-based model – Improve your skills to design and analyze individual-based models – Explore practical applications in epidemiology  Throughout the course there will be a strong focus on the practical implementation and analysis with R and NetLogo. The emphasis of the course will be on the process of designing and exploring individual-based models to address complex questions in epidemiology and not on the technical aspects of writing computer programs. Prior experience with R is a plus, experience with NetLogo is…
