The Infectious Disease Dynamics Group
The Infectious Disease Dynamics group is made up of faculty, post-docs, graduate and undergraduate students who are interested in the dynamics of a wide span of infectious diseases, from dengue to influenza to chikungunya, based at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
