Description

Epidemics typically reach smaller peak sizes, and are harder to eliminate, than would be predicted by simple models. Pervasive heterogeneity (including species diversity of hosts, genetic diversity within hosts and pathogens, spatial diversity and environmental diversity) can play a large role in these and other patterns of disease spread. This minisymposium will explore disease models that take various types of heterogeneity into account, both from a theoretical perspective, and from the perspective of fitting models for the purpose of making specific predictions.
