We live in a global society, where travel is the norm. Over the past few months, most of the world has been adhering to some degree of social distancing measures. Despite the fact that we have not yet identified a vaccine or therapeutic for COVID-19, many locations are beginning to reopen. This reality requires that we remain vigilant and on the lookout for future COVID-19 outbreaks. For our last D4P webinar of the academic year, our D4P fellows Devany West and Anna Kolstad will take us through “Feasibility of controlling COVID-19 outbreaks by isolation of cases and contacts,” published in the Lancet Global Health journal in February of 2020. Here, we will discuss insights into a model that takes into consideration contact tracing efforts and case isolation to help contain the spread of a nascent COVID-19 outbreak. ... See MoreSee Less

We live in a global society, where travel is the norm. While most of the world has been observing social distancing measures in some form, many locations are beginning to open up, despite having no accessible vaccine or other therapeutic for treating COVID-19. Until these measures can be implemented, we must be on the lookout for future COVID-19 outbreaks. For our last D4P webinar of the academic year, our D4P fellows Devany West and Anna Kolstad will take us through “Feasibility of controlling COVID-19 outbreaks by isolation of cases and contacts,” published in the Lancet Global Health journal in February of 2020. Here, we will discuss insights into a model that takes into consideration both contact tracing efforts and case isolation to help contain the spread of a nascent COVID-19 outbreak.
Anna Kolstad is a research assistant at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She has a background in engineering and a fascination with the nervous system. In her current laboratory she is using new imaging techniques to study structural and anatomical organization of the brain. She is often astounded by the beauty and complexity of the structures she sees! Outside of the lab Anna loves reading novels, traveling, and spending time in the outdoors.
Devany West is a graduate fellow at The Rockefeller University where she specializes in Biophysics research. Outside of science, Devany enjoys participating in dance classes that range in genre from ballet to hip-hop. She also loves playing music, writing fiction and seeing live shows!
Data for the People (D4P) is a weekly, interactive web-series that invites ‘the people’ (all of our community members, worldwide!) to engage with relevant scientific research topics. Scientific research topics are presented by scientists in our communities—directly from the primary scientific literature— and explored in a way that maintains the rigor of the research, while eliminating the inaccessible jargon. ...
