Operationalising Modern Mathematical Epidemiology

This month Liz Buckingham-Jeffery is joining me and Tim Kinyanjui to complete the team for the EPSRC-funded project Operationalising Modern Mathematical Epidemiology, which is a Healthcare Technologies Impact Fellowship I hold (picture of us all below). The project is about development of some recent ideas at developed by mathematical scientists to generate benefits in the healthcare system. We have non-academic partners from three major Manchester hospitals (Central Manchester, North Manchester and the Christie), Public Health England's national Real-time Syndromic Surveillance group, and a data analytics firm Spectra Analytics. The first papers from this project are starting be be submitted, and we have an ambitious programme of research and impact-related activity over the next couple of years to ensure that the potential benefits to population health from theoretical developments are realised.

Me, Liz and Tim
