NSF Predictive Intelligence for Pandemic Prevention (PIPP) Workshop – Pandemic Readiness for Emerging Pathogens (PREP)
February 16, 17, 2021
The goal of the workshop is to foster scientific discussion and catalyze innovation and partnerships to significantly enhance our understanding of the challenges and potential solutions to rapid detection and assessment of emerging pathogens and infectious disease dynamics from the molecular to the ecological scale. We invite participants from academia, government, industry, and non-governmental organizations from varied disciplines: Engineering (ENG), Biological Sciences (BIO), Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), and Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE).
PREP has four topical thrusts:
1) Rapid and Accurate Detection and Assessment of Emerging Pathogens
2) Monitoring Environmental Change, Animal Movements, and High-Risk Interfaces for Disease Transmission
3) Monitoring Human Movements and At-risk Communities for Disease Transmission and Spread
4) Data-Intensive Machine Learning and Modeling for Pandemic Preparedness.
Each topical thrust has vision talks, panels and breakout sessions. The goal of the workshop is a roadmap for research investments to address key technical and scientific challenges for pandemic prevention.
