This event will showcase research conducted by epidemic modellers both within Warwick and within JUNIPER (Joint Universities Pandemic and Epidemiological Research). JUNIPER is a consortium of epidemic modelling research groups from seven universities: Warwick, Bristol, Cambridge, Exeter, Lancaster, Manchester and Oxford.
A draft timetable of talks for 11th October 2021 is below. Please note that this is an initial draft, and so the timings are liable to change.
