The Center for the Assessment of Tobacco Regulations (CAsToR) is pleased to once again announce the availability of scholarships for a short course on tobacco simulation modeling (EPID 730) to be offered during the University of Michigan Summer Session in Epidemiology (SSE) Program in 2022. Scholarships are also available for Complex Systems Modeling for Public Health Research (EPID 793), in conjunction with EPID 730 scholarships.

EPID 730 will be offered as an on-line course and will provide an introductory overview of computational modeling techniques with examples in Tobacco Regulatory Science, discussions of best practices, and hands-on lab experience in which students will develop their own simulation models. At the completion of the course, students will be able to explain the contributions of simulation modeling in Tobacco Regulatory Science, and describe advantages and disadvantages of common modeling approaches. Students will explore how to incorporate simulation modeling into their own Tobacco Regulatory Science research and participate in interdisciplinary teams that use modeling techniques.

The deadline to apply is April 6th, 2022, and applicants are asked to wait to apply to the SSE program until after receiving notification of the scholarship funding decision in late April. Please see the flyer for more information and a link to the application.
