Changing measles epidemiology in Australia and appropriate responses

Related Staff:

This project uses models to examine the impacts of Australia’s changing immune profile to measles and seeks to harmonise predictions based on serological and notification-based data in Australia. This project encompasses a number of areas, including improved models of measles immune responses, statistical approaches for analysing outbreak data, analysis of how local variation in vaccine coverage affects population protection. The wider aim is in improving the evidence base for locally targeted and wider immunisation campaigns for measles.
