The ABM-Lab offers a research and training program to develop professional skills with a solid theoretical background in systems biology, with particular emphasis on computational epidemiology, pathogen-host dynamics, ecological interactions, inference and data analysis, stochastic modelling and simulations, and use of smart technologies in modelling infectious diseases. The program provides an enriched environment for interdisciplinary networking activities and collaborations across disciplines.
The ABM-Lab has access to computational facilities offered by the Compute Canada system, and is equipped with a computer private network, Mac Pro workstations for all research activities, and a high-end server and large storage capacity on-site. Smart technologies and communication portals are available for collaborations, webinars, and sharing information and knowledge generated in the Lab. The ABM-Lab is hosted by the Faculty of Science, and its research and training activities are supported by several funding agencies including CIHR, NSERC, and MITACS.
