Infectious Insights: Data, Mathematics, and Preventing the Next Pandemic

SFU President’s Lecture

Vancouver, BC

The pandemic brought math and data into the public eye, with herd immunity and flattening curves. But what can we know about a new infectious disease? What key data can tell us what we’re facing? How can new technologies illuminate the spread and evolution of a possible pandemic, and show us what we might do to prevent it?

Join me on November 29th, 2023 as I showcase how new data and mathematics are setting the stage for preventing pandemics and consider why the world needs public data about infectious diseases and their evolution.
