Johns Hopkins Center for Advanced Modeling

The Johns Hopkins Center for Advanced Modeling (CAM) is a University-wide research center devoted to transformative synthetic modeling across the social, behavioral, and health sciences. They are actively modeling the transmission dynamics of global pandemic influenza, the evolution of antibiotic resistance, the spread of violence, the use of large social media data bases for public health surveillance, the economics of religion, the spatial dynamics of cities, patient flow in clinical settings, computational phylogenetic forecasting, and the myriad challenges of catastrophic event preparedness, among many other topics, theoretical and applied.

Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER)

The Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER) is a multi-institutional research and education center with headquarters at the University of California, Berkeley. Investigators from over 20 universities, several consulting companies, plus researchers at various State and Federal government agencies contribute to research programs focused on performance-based earthquake engineering in disciplines including structural and geotechnical engineering, geology/seismology, lifelines, transportation, risk management, and public policy. The PEER mission is to develop, validate, and disseminate performance-based seismic design technologies for buildings and infrastructure to meet the diverse economic and safety needs of owners and society. PEER's research defines appropriate performance targets, and develops engineering tools and criteria that can be used by practicing professionals to achieve those targets, such as safety, cost, and post-earthquake functionality.
