MIDAS is leading the research on using computational and mathematical models to prepare the nation for responding to outbreaks of infectious diseases, whether these occur deliberately or through natural means. Its work is funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health. In 2009, the University of Pittsburgh was designated a MIDAS National Center of Excellence, leading a collaborative network of scientists in the development and the use of computational models that will prepare the nation to respond to outbreaks of infectious diseases.
