Welcome to Compartmental Modeling Software (CMS)#

The Institute for Disease Modeling (IDM) develops disease modeling software that is thoroughly tested and shared with the research community to advance the understanding of disease dynamics. This software helps determine the combination of health policies and intervention strategies that can lead to disease eradication.

The primary software, EMOD, is an agent-based stochastic model that simulates the simultaneous interactions of agents in an effort to recreate complex phenomena. CMS is also stochastic, but uses the compartmental modeling framework to run faster, simpler simulations.
