Dr. Halloran / Dr. Longini

Drs. Halloran and Longini forged paths in the field of biomathematics and biostatistics to study the spread of infectious diseases. During the last year, they have consulted with federal and state officials and have been consulted by world health organizations to help develop intervention plans to control potential pandemics, such as avian flu. Using powerful computers to track the potential path of infectious diseases, the duo believe their approach could help to save the lives of hundreds of millions of people, particularly against pandemic flu, which unchecked could spread across the globe in a matter of months.
