Theme 2 - Modelling, Economics, Evidence-synthesis
Public Health England
Marc is interested in how processes at different levels (social contacts, immune response, molecular sequences of the virus) can interact together and how they impact on the dynamics of infectious diseases.
He believe that a more holistic approach to infectious disease modelling can greatly enhance our understanding of disease control mechanisms.
As part of Public Health England he has been involved in the evaluation of immunisation campaigns in the UK. In particular, with a team from Public Health England, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the Athens University of Economics and Business, who conducted a study about the impact and cost-effectiveness of potential extensions of the current influenza vaccination programme.
Their study resulted in a change of policy at the national level with an extension of the programme to 2-16 year old children.
