MIDAS: Modeling of Infectious Disease Agent Study

In 2004, the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) established the Modeling of Infectious Disease Agent Study as a collaborative network of research scientists who use computational, statistical and mathematical models to understand infectious disease dynamics and thereby assist the nation to prepare for, detect and respond to infectious disease threats.

ACID researchers' role in MIDAS is to develop advanced visualization techniques to visualize the large, complex outputs from epidemiological models.
