The 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 effort 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 will be made by incorporating human behavioral and social processes into mathematical epidemiological models. A key reason for building such a research program is that unintended outcomes of public health interventions should not be unanticipated. 

Concept papers for funding consideration are due April 1, 2022.

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

Amina Eladdadi, NSF, MPS/DMS

Zhilan Feng, NSF, MPS/DMS

Samuel Scheiner, NSF, BIO/DEB 

Trisha Van Zandt, NSF, SBE/BCS

Joseph Whitmeyer, NSF, SBE/SES
