The Trials and Simulations of Disease Modelling
Imagine a new disease is starting to spread in your town or city. Now imagine you have to decide what to do about it. Do you buy medicine? Do you buy vaccines? Who gets them? Whatever you decide may result in illness or even death for some people. Whatever you decide could cost millions.

This month’s talk will be presented by Professor Lisa White, Head of Mathematical & Economic Modelling, Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit, University of Oxford.
