Modeling the Opioid Epidemic Workshop

Modeling the Opioid Epidemic WorkshopThe Public Health Dynamics Laboratory (PHDL) and the Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI), both at the University of Pittsburgh, co-sponsored a one-day national workshop on “Modeling the Opioid Epidemic: Insights and Potential Solutions from Computational Science” on October 2, 2017 in Pittsburgh. The workshop, the first in a series, was a great success. Over 140 researchers, clinicians, students and public health officials attended, representing more than a dozen academic institutions, federal agencies, community organizations, and health care systems. This workshop provided investigators and practitioners with a unique opportunity to learn more about the computational work being done at multiple scales in response to the opioid epidemic. Presentations and discussions featured speakers and panelists working at all levels and scales of computational modeling to examine the opioid crisis from the biological, to the individual human, to population-wide levels of science.
