Director's Message

Dear Friends,

We are excited to welcome you to the homepage of the Tufts University Initiative for the Forecasting and Modeling of Infectious Disease (InForMID)!

We have formed this Initiative to foster new partnerships and interdisciplinary collaborations, focusing on the complex problems involved in the study of infectious disease.

We hope this website will inspire you to propose new directions for investigation, suggest topics for meetings and publications, recruit students, propose new collaborations, or recruit new members to already existing investigations. We are also happy to invite members and affiliates to apply for funding through the Initiative for support of these activities and for the training of students and post-doctoral researchers interested in broadening the scope of their research to related, but otherwise inaccessible, fields. In this way we hope to nurture a new generation of scientists with an integrative perspective.

We believe that the broader the involvement from the greater academic community, the more our Initiative will be able to accomplish and the more all of us will be able to push the study of infectious disease to new heights.

We hope you will join us in this exciting enterprise and help us to continue to build a strong and successful Initiative.
