Abstract

Disease processes often involve interacting factors at multiple scales, which can affect both how we build models of these systems and the data sets needed to estimate model parameters. In this talk I will discuss some examples of disease transmission models that depend on processes at scales ranging from cellular to environmental, including cholera and human papillomavirus (HPV).
