Event overview

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 teams of epidemiological modellers and statisticians in the JUNIPER consortium represent a core of committed and experienced research groups that have been generating predictions, forecasts and insights feeding into the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Modelling (SPI-M) and the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), both of whom advise the UK government on scientific matters relating to the UK’s response to the pandemic.

This meeting was the second in a series of JUNIPER research meetings over the coming year. A key goal of the consortium is to be outward-facing and inclusive. These research meetings are a major part of the consortium’s engagement with the wider epidemiological and mathematical research communities.

The talk outlined ongoing modelling work of the infectious disease dynamics of SARS-CoV-2 variants.
