EEPH Program Faculty Drs. Garabed, Lee & Rempala Publish in PLOS

Ecology, Epidemiology and Population Health program members, Drs. Rebecca Garabed, Jiyoung Lee and Greg Rempala, have  published a paper entitled, "Modeling household transmission dynamics: Application to waterborne diarrheal disease in Central Africa." In the paper authors propose an entirely new analytical method of modeling household disease transmissions relying on the mathematical theory of stationary dynamical systems. Their approach allows in particular to re-create typical household transmission networks purely from reported incidence data and has potential applications for analyzing multiple communicable diseases that are endemic in certain populations/parts of the world (eg. Chlamydia, Malaria, HIV). The work appeared in the journal PLOS ONE.
