Research Themes

Testing

Effective diagnostic testing serves at least four purposes: (i) diagnosis, (ii) surveillance, (iii) outbreak mitigation/control and (iv) screening (e.g., for access to long-term care (LTC) homes, etc.). COVID-19 has shown that it is critical to maximize testing capacity and to ensure that resources are optimally allocated across these four objectives. These have been challenges throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Laying out the framework for testing capacity and allocation will build preparedness for emerging infectious diseases and potential pandemics, and may inform testing allocation for endemic infections in Canada.

Vaccination

The existence of COVID-19 vaccines highlights the importance of research on vaccination distribution strategies. CANMOD vaccination research will focus on (i) pandemic endgames, (ii) optimal deployment, (iii) behavioural dynamics and (iv) evaluation of vaccine programs. Although COVID-19 is our current priority, vaccination programs, their evaluation and their relationship to population behaviour are important for polio, measles, mumps, rubella, pertussis and other infections. Robust collaborations with public health institutions, and increased capacity in this area, will have a range of applications beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

Genomics

Interest in establishing strong genomic surveillance programs for SARS-CoV-2 is intense, with the CanCoGen consortium planning to sequence 150,000 viral genomes in Canada. While virus genomes can describe the global context of introductions and origins of local clusters of cases, CANMOD will focus on building methods for characterizing and modelling local transmission once it is established, and for surveillance for viral determinants of increased fitness and of enhanced risk of spillover, virulence and transmission.

Heterogeneity and syndemics

Emerging infectious diseases impose disproportionate burdens according to societal fault lines marked by marginalization, socioeconomic disparities, injustices, and inequities. In some cases (e.g., COVID-19) this is marked by syndemics. We will build on and extend an existing cross-sectoral partnership including patient and family advisors to greatly enrich agent-based modeling (ABM), informed by those with lived experience. Specifically, in our COVID-19 Individual-level Geospatial Hybrid Model (CIGHM), we will improve consideration of geography (e.g., policy dis-coordination, clustering of events, EMS-overdose reporting data), enrichment with substance-use pathways, capturing homelessness, socioeconomic disruption and housing, and housing service delivery.

Behaviour

In infectious disease outbreaks we often see the population reacting to outbreak severity, changing the transmission dynamics over time. For example, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to voluntary and government-mandated physical distancing across the world, which slows spread. Further, we see these behaviours relax when case counts are low and increase when high. One way to partially account for these behaviours in a model is to include covariates such as Google mobility data to account for changes in population mobility, or vaccine uptake. However, such measures may miss out on important subpopulations (e.g., those who do not carry cell phones),behaviours such as mask wearing and a range of risk factors.

Smaller jurisdictions

CANMOD will develop mathematical models that: (i) are appropriate for provincial/territorial planning in smaller jurisdictions; (ii) explain how optimal public health response may be different in regions with a high proportion in imported cases; and (iii) explore how the different epidemic dynamics experienced in AC-T are influenced by the social dynamics of small and remote communities. Atlantic Canada and the territories (AC-T) have experienced different COVID-19 epidemic dynamics than the rest of Canada, with periods of no community spread and a higher portion of days with very few cases. In AC-T importations account for the majority of COVID-19 cases and outbreaks in AC-T have been extinguished when public health measures have been enacted.
