A national scale microsimulation of disease outbreaks
Our objective in this research is to take advantage of a supercomputer grid (TeraGrid) to develop a distributed memory national scale agent-based model (ABM) to study disease outbreaks at the micro level. This has data needs at both the national data surveillance and the local community structure and outbreak levels.
