February 15, 2017 |Project Tycho Introduced to Indian Health Researchers

In December 2016, the Public Health Dynamics Laboratory (PHDL) at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health hosted a one-week workshop titled "Empowering Indian Health Researchers with Computational Modeling Tools". Six researchers from India participated in the workshop, a collaboration between SHARE INDIA/MediCiti Institute of Medical Sciences, the Indian Institute of Public Health, Hyderabad, and the Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh.

The workshop was designed to train Indian researchers in simulation and modeling and other tools developed by the PHDL. In addition to the hands-on-training in the use and application of FRED (Framework for Reconstructing Epidemiological Dynamics), an open source modeling system developed by the PHDL, Dr. Wilbert van Panhuis provided an introduction to Project Tycho.
