MIDAS (Models of Infectious Disease Agent Study)
The MIDAS network was created in 2004 in to improve preparedness and response against epidemic threats. Currently, MIDAS has evolved into a global network of scientists and practitioners from academia, industry, government, and non-governmental agencies, who develop and use computational, statistical and mathematical models to improve the understanding of infectious disease dynamics as it relates to pathogenesis, transmission, effective control strategies, and forecasting.

The MIDAS network supports open science practices by encouraging members to collaborate by sharing information, datasets, models, workflows, and research insights to improve global preparedness for, and response against infectious disease threats. The MIDAS network is coordinated by the MIDAS Coordination Center (MCC), responsible for organizing the annual MIDAS meeting, outreach and training activities, and for providing data and high-performance computing (HPC) services to MIDAS members. MCC Services are provided at no charge to MIDAS members.
MIDAS network membership is open to any infectious disease scientist, practitioner, or student who supports the mission and vision of the network. The MIDAS network is defined by broad inclusivity and diversity of its members, fostering collaboration to advance the science and application of infectious disease modeling. Interested scientists, students, and practitioners can sign-up to become MIDAS members on the MIDAS website (www.midasnetwork.us). There is no cost associated for becoming a MIDAS member.
The MIDAS network has contributed to improving global preparedness and response against infectious diseases through research, training, advocacy, and service. MIDAS researchers are at the forefront of developing new modeling methodology and data sources and applying new methods to study ongoing and newly emerging infectious diseases, often in collaboration with health agencies. MIDAS researchers are highly active in training the next generation of modelers is known to be student-friendly with an exciting annual meeting and many excellent training opportunities.
