Canadian Mathematical Modelling of COVID-19 Task Force

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) has awarded a consortium of Canada’s mathematical sciences Institutes $666,667 to fight the global coronavirus pandemic.  The successful application to the Government of Canada’s 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Rapid Research Funding call was led by the Fields Institute, and partner institutes include AARMSCRM, and PIMS.

This federal funding has been supplemented by an additional $90,000 support for AARMS from the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation (NBHRF).

The research will mobilize a national network of infectious disease multi-scale modellers to assess the transmission risk of COVID-19 and project outbreak trajectories. This will enable them to evaluate public health interventions for outbreak prevention and control, while informing public health policymakers in the development of effective treatment strategies.
