In collaboration with researchers from Georgia Tech, Brown University, and the Technical University of Denmark, Prof Weitz has published a new paper entitled “Heterogeneity in susceptibility dictates the order of epidemic models” in the Journal of Theoretical Biology. This work examines the complicated relationship between susceptibility to infection and infection spread in epidemics, highlighting the need to “examine the shape of susceptibility in natural populations” to improve epidemic models.
