Building on the success of HealthMap, the award-winning infectious disease outbreak surveillance platform, our epidemiologists, clinicians, ecologists, and software developers work together to build new tools and resources for disease prediction, surveillance, modeling, and analysis. These tools are used widely by policy makers and researchers alike.
