January 7, 2016 |Project Tycho® Study Leads to Regional Southeast Asia Meeting on Dengue Forecasting

In collaboration with the University of Malaya, the University of Pittsburgh will organize a Southeast Asia regional meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on January 26, 2016. During this meeting, country partners and international experts will review the status of disease forecasting based on climate and epidemiological data, in particular for dengue fever, given the current strong El Niño season. This convening of partner institutions from Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Taiwan, India and Indonesia, resulted in part from the study entitled “Region-wide synchrony and traveling waves of dengue across eight countries in Southeast Asia” published in the October 15, 2015 issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. All data for this study are publicly available from Project Tycho®.
