Professor Hayriye Gulbudak of our Department of Mathematics received a three year NSF grant with total funding of $240,000 from the National Science Foundation, Modeling Across-Scale Feedback of Pathogen Virulence, Host Immunity, and Disease Control.

A current challenge for disease modeling and public health is to understand pathogen dynamics across infection scales from within-host to between-host. Viral and immune response kinetics upon infection impact transmission to other hosts and feedback into population-wide immunity, all of which influence the overall disease burden and trajectory of an outbreak. This work will provide undergraduate and graduate students with advanced training in this emerging interdisciplinary scientific field. Congratulations Dr. Gulbudak and much success with the research!
