Mathematics and COVID-19

        

About the lecture series

To promote the application of mathematics and mathematical modelling in combating COVID-19, the Centre for Disease Modeling (CDM) together with the Chinese Society for Mathematical Biology (CSMB) has launched a weekly distinguished lecture series, “Mathematics and COVID-19”.  There will be 16 distinguished speakers to present topics that will cover and examine how mathematics can contribute to the understanding of SARS-CoV-2 to inform public health policy decision making.

You are invited!
