Funding opportunity webinar: Incorporating Human Behavior in Epidemiological Models (IHBEM)

About the series

The joint NSF-NIH initiative: Incorporating Human Behavior in Epidemiological Models (IHBEM) supports research that stimulates fundamental interdisciplinary, potentially transformative research concerning the incorporation of human social, behavioral, and economic processes into mathematical epidemiological models. The IHBEM program is motivated by the urgent need to provide more reliable modeling tools to inform decision making and to evaluate public health policies during pandemics and other public health crises, with the premise that important advances may be made by incorporating human behavioral and social processes in mathematical epidemiological models. The goal of this program is to minimize unintended outcomes of public health interventions.

Proposal submission window: February 1-14, 2024.

Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions during a live Q&A session and a panel will answer the questions. The panelists include:

Zhilan Feng, NSF, MPS/DMS

Joseph Whitmeyer, NSF, SBE/SES

Katharina Dittmar, NSF, BIO/DEB

Susan Wright, NIH, NIDA

Amina Eladdadi, NSF, MPS/DMS
