The Institute for Disease Modeling recently released v1.6 of their EMOD software. EMOD v1.6 introduces a new feature for modeling disease transmission for a given population called Heterogeneous Intra-Node Transmission or HINT. While the software has always provided the capability to model large-scale spatial heterogeneities, disease transmission within each node was homogeneously governed by a […]
Pablos Holman was recently interviewed by David Shing, AOL’s Digital Prophet, for the Huffington Post. Check out the article here and watch the interview below.
Q: What is your background? A: I was born in Kiev, my family immigrated to the U.S. in 1989 – it was very much the “American dream” experience. My parents came here with very little, but my dad was able to find work in his field – he was a software engineer and was able […]
The Institute for Disease Modeling‘s HIV within-host modeling effort, led by Anna Bershteyn, recently published a paper in the open access, peer-reviewed journal BMC Systems Biology. The paper — A Model of HIV Drug Resistance Driven by Heterogeneities in Host Immunity and Adherence Patterns — explores methods of implementing host heterogeneities and their long-term effects on […]
Wired recently published an article called 7 Brilliant Designs That Save Lives. As part of Intellectual Ventures’ Global Good program, our team at Intellectual Ventures Laboratory helped develop two of the designs included in the article, the Passive Vaccine Storage Device and Mazzi Milk Jug. The article talks about design as a crucial tool in helping […]
Recently, the Institute for Disease Modeling published a paper in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface. The paper — Age-dependent Partnering and the HIV Transmission Chain: a Microsimuation Analysis — describes the structure and parameters of EMOD-HIV, a detailed population model that represents the epidemic with sufficient detail to characterize the dynamics of ongoing transmission by […]
