BiographyNeil Ferguson is Director of the MRC Centre for Outbreak Analysis and Modelling at Imperial College London. He uses mathematical and statistical models to investigate the processes shaping infectious disease pathogenesis, evolution and transmission. In addition to some basic theoretical work, Professor Ferguson’s research has focused on applying models to study the transmission and control of influenza, SARS, BSE/vCJD, HIV, foot-and-mouth disease and bioterrorist threats. He is a Fellow of the UK Academy of Medical Sciences and received an OBE in 2001 for his work advising on the foot and mouth disease epidemic in livestock that year. His current research focus is on the use of mathematical models as contingency planning tools for emerging human infections (notably pandemic influenza), bioterrorist threats and livestock infections (FMD and avian influenza). Professor Ferguson is a member of multiple UK government advisory bodies, and also advises the US government, the World Health Organisation and the European Union on pandemic planning and infectious disease modelling.
