Coding against contagion: fighting epidemics with computers

Thursday 25th April 2019 @ 19:00

Non-Member: £12.00 ; Staff: £5.00 ; Student: £3.00

Steven Riley, Professor of Infectious Disease Dynamics, School of Public Health

The current Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo is the second biggest in history - and it shows no sign of being contained soon.

Hear how can we fight this with coding.

Coming so soon after the 2014 Ebola outbreak and a year after the centenary of the influenza pandemic of 1918, understanding how infectious diseases spread and developing strategies to contain them is crucial.

Optionally followed by supper (this can be booked on the event booking form).
After the lecture a Friends' Table has been reserved at a local restaurant to entertain the speaker and for any of the audience who would like to join us to continue the evening's discussion. A two-course fixed price supper is served including wine, coffee and service charge.
