Computational Modeling of Infectious
Diseases IE 3073 / HPM 3073
Term: Spring 2012
Course Number: IE 3073 / HPM 3073
Day, Time: Tues 1:00 - 3:30 pm
Course Description: The course covers current research topics on modeling methods in infectious diseases including agent-based models, Markov simulation models, approximation methods to perform probabilistic sensitivity analysis, expected value of perfect information, and advances in cost-effectiveness modeling framework.The course will focus on the methodology as well as application of models to several infectious diseases such as influenza, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. The following topics will be covered:
·Agent based modeling for infectious diseases and its relationship with other modeling approaches.
·Variance reduction techniques in individual-level models.
·Approximation methods to perform probabilistic sensitivity analysis in agent-based or Monte-Carlo simulation models.
·Topics on value of information analysis such as expected value of perfect information.
·Cost-effectiveness modeling framework including future interventions.
·Economic evaluations of pandemic control interventions using complex agent-based models e.g. FRED model developed by MIDAS group.
