Who We Are
The JHSPH TB Modeling and Translational Epi Group is a group of faculty, clinical and postdoctoral fellows, and students who are dedicated to improving health outcomes for people living with - and at risk for - tuberculosis, the leading infectious cause of mortality worldwide. Led by Dr. David Dowdy, we combine methods of field epidemiology, infectious disease modeling, economic evaluation, and implementation science to learn more about the interventions that are most likely to accelerate progress against TB on a population level.
Interdisciplinary Breadth of Experience -- We strive to learn from each other by synthesizing a breadth of methods and experience to answer important questions.
Quality of Work -- We aim to set the highest standards in scientific quality, moving the fields of TB modeling and translational epidemiology forward.
Collegiality and Openness -- We see ourselves as part of a global community that seeks to eliminate TB as a threat to human health. We make all our methods and code available, welcome anyone, and collaborate broadly with others.
We meet each Tuesday at noon during the academic year.
