Armin Mikler presents webinar for Texas Dept of State Health Services


Dr. Armin R. Mikler presented a webinar “Utilizing Computational Tools for the Design and Analysis of Bio-Emergency Response Plans" for the Texas Department of State Health Services in Austin on November 30. Dr. Mikler is the Director of the Computational Epidemiology Research Laboratory at the University of North Texas.

Following the accidental or deliberate release of harmful biological agents, responders have little time to mount an adequate response. Researchers at the newly formed Center for Computational Epidemiology and Response Analysis at the University of North Texas are developing new tools that will help to prepare for such events. "Where?" and "How?" questions are the basis for developing efficient emergency response plans long before these health emergencies actually occur.

For more information, see this announcement from UNT Research and Economic Development.
