MISMS: using data analysis to inform disease prevention
MISMS is an 18-year program with a mission to advance evidence-based policies for influenza control in the US and globally. The program includes basic research and training workshops led by a core team of scientists at Fogarty International Center (FIC), based at the US National Institutes of Health.
MISMS staff annually organize training workshops to teach methods of data analysis, with a focus on low- and middle-income countries, and lead global collaborations to facilitate data-sharing and large-scale studies of disease dynamics.
