The GPCE Expedition

Global Pervasive Computational Epidemiology (GPCE) is a National Science Foundation ‘Expeditions in Computing’ program aimed at advancing infectious disease computational epidemiology by integrating Epidemiology with Computational Science, Engineering, and Technology.

The aim of the GPCE Expedition is to develop transformative and scalable computing and data science technologies to address fundamental problems in real-time epidemic science.

The Network

In this project, CDDEP partners with a team of scientists from several academic institutions in the United States to produce ‘state of the art’ research directed at impacting public policy and reducing the burden of epidemic outbreaks:

Research from CDDEP

“Epidemiology and Transmission Dynamics of COVID-19 in Two Indian States”

CDDEP leads the largest contact tracing study to date, investigating COVID-19 transmission patterns in India. In the largest contact tracing study to date published in Science, a team of researchers from CDDEP, Princeton, University of California, Berkeley, and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in collaboration with the Government of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh investigated COVID-19 epidemiology in India, giving a much needed insight onto COVID-19 transmission in low resource settings. The study was highlighted in several major news outlets.

Listen to Dr. Ramanan Laxminarayan discuss the study in one of the GPCE Series talks here.
