EpiModel 2.0

The goal of EpiModel 2.0: Integrated Network Models for HIV/STI Prevention Science is to integrate network capabilities into the EpiModel modeling package.

This NIH/NIAID-funded study is a multidisciplinary project to develop statistical methods and software tools for network-based mathematical models of HIV. On this project, the Northwestern site focuses on leveraging data on sexual network and sexual behavior to improve these models and software. 

Patrick Janulis, PhD, is the EpiModel 2.0 site PI; Samuel Jenness is the PI. This project is a collaboration between the CONNECT Program and EDIT Program.
