Incorporating heterogeneity in farmer disease control behaviour into a livestock disease transmission model
JUNIPER (Joint UNIversities Pandemic and Epidemiological Research) is a UKRI funded consortium of epidemiology modelling groups from seven universities: Bristol, Cambridge, Exeter, Lancaster, Manchester, Oxford and Warwick. The consortium was formed in the autumn of 2020 to provide quantitative epidemiological advice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This was an annual meeting, providing an opportunity for JUNIPER consortium members to hear about recent work and discuss future directions of research.
My talk summarised a recent study from the Farmer-led Epidemic and Endemic Disease-management (FEED) project, exploring the role of heterogeneous farmer behaviour to inform epidemiological models of livestock vaccination.
For more on this study, see the associated preprint.
