Mathematical modelling of infectious diseases and health economic evaluation have become very important topics of research, leading Prof. Dr. Philippe Beutels to found the Centre for Health Economics Research and Modelling Infectious Diseases (CHERMID) in 2007. The CHERMID team is a highly interdisciplinary research group with expertise in economics, statistics, mathematics, medical sciences, physics, computer sciences, biology, philosophy and sociology. We conduct research on e.g. the economic impact of infectious diseases, societal preferences for health care prioritisation and social mixing patterns relevant to disease transmission. Members of the group organise or assist in multiple courses in the Bachelor and Masters of Medicine, Pharmaceutical Care, Epidemiology and Biomedical Sciences. Next to the supervision of Master theses, we organise every year a summer school for people who have an interest in quantitative research, and who want to learn about infectious disease models and health economic evaluations.
