Modeling COVID-19 Dynamics and Patterns Across New Jersey: Assessing Effects of Heterogeneities, Exposure Controls, and Social and Environmental Factors
February 16, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The New Jersey Alliance for Clinical and Translational Science (NJACTS) is hosting a virtual event at 1 p.m. on February 16 as part of its Special Populations Core 2021 Webinar Series.
Presented by Panos G. Georgopoulos, PhD, professor, Rutgers School of Public Health
From the event flyer: COVID-19 has created an unprecedented global public health crisis. Prior exposures to chemical, biological, and psychosocial stressors affect susceptibilities to the disease; data show that outcomes are strongly correlated with individual-level risk factors, such as age, sex, and medical history, as well as with multiple, spatially heterogeneous, demographic, environmental, and socioeconomic factors. Rutgers School of Health professor Panos Georgopoulos describes a computational framework that combines stochastic epidemic modeling with data science approaches to evaluate factors influencing disease spread and characterizes spatiotemporal patterns and risks of COVID-19 that remain important as vaccination efforts are being implemented.
