Disease Ecology Seminar: Daniel Coombs
"Stochastic Models for the Transmission and Establishment of HIV Infection," Daniel Coombs, professor of mathematics at the University of British Columbia
The likelihood of HIV infection following risky contact is believed to be low. This suggests that the infection process is stochastic and governed by rare events. Dr. Coombs will present mathematical branching process models of early infection and show how he has used them to gain insights into the duration of the undetectable phase of HIV infection, the likelihood of success of pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis, and the effects of prior infection with HSV-2.
Lunch will be served to those that RSVP. Please contact Trippe Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
