- This initiative encourages research on the evolutionary principles that underlie the emergence, spread, and containment of infectious disease. An explicit goal is to stimulate interdisciplinary research between (a) quantitative and computational sciences and (b) experimental, clinical, or field studies. Areas of particular interest include the evolution of pathogens, evolutionary dynamics of host-pathogen systems, and the consequences of intervention strategies. The focus of this program is limited to discovery of fundamental biological principles rather than to detailed knowledge or treatment of specific diseases.
