Description

We are pleased to announce the second annual E²M²: Ecological and Epidemiological Modeling in
Madagascar clinic, to be held January 13-20, 2018 at Centre ValBio, Ranomafana National Park, Madagascar,
with a mandatory closing session to follow at Institut Pasteur de Madagascar on January 22. The clinic will be a
ten-day intensive workshop aimed to provide an introduction to the use of dynamical models in
understanding ecological and epidemiological data.

Students will participate in a series of interactive lectures and computer-based tutorials and learn to
fine-tune model-based research questions, develop clear model frameworks and corresponding equations,
and fit models to real-world data. All students will work closely with peers and faculty to develop a research
plan for an ongoing or existing project integrating dynamical modeling with data collection and/or analysis in a
biological system of their choosing. These research plans can then be used as a foundation for future
dissertation or grant proposals. Materials from last year’s 5-day short course are available for your perusal on
our webpage: http://metcalflab.princeton.edu/course-materials/

The course will be targeted towards students in their third cycle or higher in biology, mathematics,
medicine, public health, or related fields, though all are welcome to apply. The course will be taught primarily
in English, though a subset of the faculty will be available to offer some translation into French and/or
Malagasy. A working knowledge of the English language is required for admission; however, we will do our
best to make the material accessible to students who find English challenging. If you have any questions about
the appropriateness of your background or training for our course, either in language or in science, please do
not hesitate to contact us straight away (email below).

Please do not hesitate contact Cara Brook (cbrook@berkeley.edu) or Tanjona Ramiadantsoa
(ramiadantsoa@wisc.edu) with any questions or concerns. We hope to see you in January!
