This module provides a brief introduction to simulation modeling.
These videos are lecture recordings from SISMID 2020. They are broken into two segments.
The following video from 2021 is a very brief overview of the main points covered in the previous two lectures, followed by questions and answers. It is recommended you watch this video after the first two. The slides from this short presentation are here as html or as pdf..
This video is from 2022. It is a bit more detailed compared to the 2021 presentation, but does not contain the simple model discussion from 2020. A question and answer segment is also included. The slides from this short presentation are here as html or as pdf.
The other units in this module cover specific topics in some more detail.
Our recent review Simulation Modelling for Immunologists provides a general introduction to the kinds of simulation models we will be discussing in this course. If you haven’t done yet, please read the paper.
See the Resources section for some additional materials, including a few textbooks, that cover within-host modeling. Some of the other readings in this module also have further pointers to additional material.
