Quantitative modeling of infectious disease epidemics
Project Year: 2007 - 2012
Statistical modelling of infectious diseases and their non-pharmaceutical interventions using existing informative data
JST Basic Research Programs (Precursory Research for Embryonic Science and Technology :PRESTO)
Project Year: 2009 - 2013
When an novel infectious disease emerges, the world does not have specific (medical) countermeasures
against it, and thus, non-pharmaceutical interventions, e.g. quarantine, isolation and contact tracing, are
called for. The present research proj...
