Global Health Epidemiology and General Epidemiology Webinar
We invite you to join us on Thursday, January 11 at 1:00 p.m. (EST) for a virtual session featuring Dr. Matthew L. Boulton and Dr. Mark Wilson.
Dr. Boulton is a Professor of Epidemiology & Preventive Medicine and Professor of Health Management & Policy and is serving as the Senior Associate Dean for Global Public Health and Director, Office of Global Public Health at the School of Public Health. In his role as Senior Associate Dean, he has overall responsibility for building and guiding the school’s research, training, education, and practice activities in global health.
His research interests are in global health, especially in China, India, Kenya, and Afghanistan, and in vaccine preventable diseases, sociodemographic predictors for vaccine access and barriers to uptake, assessing childhood immunization coverage through use of immunization information system data, building public health capacity both domestically and internationally, and the public health workforce.
Dr. Wilson is a Professor of Epidemiology & of Ecology and Evol Biology at UM. He is an ecologist and epidemiologist with broad research interests in infectious diseases, including the analysis of transmission dynamics, the evolution of vector-host-parasite systems, and the determinants of human risk. Most projects address environmental and social variation in time and space as it impacts on vector and reservoir populations and pathogen transmission patterns.
Recent efforts have been directed at various "emerging" diseases including malaria and schistosomiasis in Africa, leishmaniasis in the Middle East, and dengue fever in South America. In addition to standard field, lab, and statistical techniques, he has been using satellite image data and GIS to undertaken spatial analyses of environmental change and the ecology of risk. Spatial analytic tools are also being applied to non-infectious disease processes.
