The Jameel Institute – Kenneth C Griffin Initiative for the Economics of Pandemic Preparedness
In September 2022, the Institute announced ‘The Jameel Institute – Kenneth C Griffin Initiative for the Economics of Pandemic Preparedness' to help us prepare for future pandemics. The initiative will use pioneering integrated economic-epidemiological modelling to provide critical data and analysis to inform public health decision related to pandemic preparedness and disease outbreaks around the world.
Under the leadership of Professor Katharina Hauck, Professor for Health Economics and Deputy Director of the Jameel Institute, the new initiative brings together epidemiologists, economists and data modellers from across Imperial College London, together with researchers from the World Health Organisation and Singapore’s Programme for Research in Epidemic Preparedness and Response (PREPARE), the National Centre for Infectious Diseases and Umea University in Sweden.
Thank you to Kenneth C Griffin and Community Jameel for providing vital resources to launch this new initiative.
