Epidemiologists and data scientists team to forecast the scale and possible impact of COVID-19 to inform policy decisions.
Message from President and CEO E. Wayne Holden
RTI International addresses the world’s most critical problems with science-based solutions in pursuit of a better future. In 2020, we met the moment to make an impact during an unprecedented global health crisis. Our research informed the medical community, policymakers, industry representatives, and practitioners on the front lines of the COVID-19 battle. While taking on this crisis directly, we sustained our focus to support other critical areas of work in support of our mission to improve the human condition. At RTI, we rise to the challenges of the moment—and we meet them.
