The Center for Statistics and Quantitative Infectious Diseases is a joint program of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, and the University of Florida. Our main interest is in quantitative methodologic developments related to scientific and public health aspects of infectious diseases, including epidemiology, evaluating interventions, immunology, and vaccinology. Our research focuses on prevention and intervention in infectious diseases of global health importance, as well as emerging infectious diseases, such as pandemic influenza. The quantitative methods include statistical, epidemiologic, mathematical modeling, computational biology, and bioinformatic methods. Our group is in the MIDAS network and is partially supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences at NIH.
