Centre for Disease Modelling

Centre for Disease Modelling logo

The Centre for Disease Modelling (CDM) is chaired by York Professor and CDM Director Jane Heffernan. It builds on the success of a research team with broad experience in epidemiology, virology, statistics, public health policy, GIS, mathematics and scientific computation. It works with other Canadian institutions and international organizations to build Canadian capacity for interdisciplinary research on disease modelling using cutting-edge mathematical and statistical techniques. The purpose of modelling infectious diseases in relation to public health is to evaluate the agent-host-environment interface and make efforts to alter the interface to advantage, through either preventive or therapeutic intervention.
