When the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a global pandemic one year ago today, a team of Stanford Health Policy faculty and researchers swiftly assembled to launch a modeling framework to investigate the epidemiology of COVID-19 and evaluate the policy responses.

A year later, the Stanford-CIDE Coronavirus Simulation Model, or SC-COSMO, remains at the forefront of dozens of projection models in the United States and Mexico, while helping the state of California and its prisons system, hospitals and health-care providers plan for and mitigate the impact of the pandemic. To date, the SC-COSMO team’s work has resulted in a half-dozen studies published in medical journals and open data sites.

Study co-authors include Theresa Ryckman, a 2016 SGF Fellow, Elizabeth Chin, a 2017 SGF Fellow, and Anneke Claypool, a 2017 SIGF Fellow.
