Posted: 10/24/2016 (CSDE Awards)
Martina Morris, CSDE Affiliate and Blumstein-Jordan professor of sociology and statistics at the University of Washington, was awarded a 2-year, $424,875 R21 grant from NIAID this summer. The research project aims to narrow the gap between generalized epidemic models and the local epidemic treatment plans they inspire. Specifically, Morris’s work focuses on HIV transmission in King County in hopes of establishing an effective parameterized HIV transmission model for regional public health planning purposes.
Morris is collaborating with UW faculty Matthew Golden (Epidemiology, School of Public Health) and Sara Glick as well as Roxanne Kerani (Division of Allergy & Infectious Disease, School of Medicine).
