  • Tamara Eugenia Awerbuch-Friedlander, PhD, é um biomatemática e cientista de saúde pública na Harvard School of Public Health, em Boston, Massachusetts. Sua pesquisa e publicações tem principal foco em interações biossociais que causam ou contribuem para a doença. Acredita-se também ser a primeira mulher membro Harvard Faculdade de mover uma ação judicial contra a Harvard University (Universidade Harvard) por discriminação sexual. Atualmente, ela é um instrutor do Departamento de Saúde Global e População (Department of Global Health and Population) da Harvard School of Public Health. Desde o início deste século, ela organizou e realizou uma pesquisa sobre as condições que levam ao surgimento, manutenção e propagação de epidemias. Sua pesquisa abrange as doenças sexualmente transmissíveis (DST), como HIV / AIDS, bem como as doenças transmitidas por vetores, como a malária e a doença de Lyme. Dra. Awerbuch-Friedlander pesquisado recentemente a disseminação e o controle da raiva baseado em uma análise eco-histórico. Seu trabalho é interdisciplinar, e suas publicações são co-autoria com membros de diferentes departamentos da Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). As Condições que contribuem para o surgimento de epidemias são de natureza complexa, envolvendo fatores biológicos, ecológicos, comportamentais, ambientais e sócio-econômicas. A maioria de seus modelos de pesquisa matemáticos tem esses fatores como sistemas que se prestam a análise qualitativa e quantitativa. Estes modelos podem ser utilizados para explorar o efeito de cada um dos fatores na presença dos outros, bem como novas intervenções. Muitos desses modelos são baseados em dados coletados em campo, zoonoses que muito preocupam, como a dinâmica populacional do carrapato que transmite a doença de Lyme na parte nordeste dos Estados Unidos, ou doenças sexualmente transmissíveis, ou como as probabilidades relativas de infecção HIV1 e HIV2 em uma coorte de prostitutas no Senegal. Alguns de seus modelos matemáticos de análise levou a descobertas epidemiológicos fundamentais, por exemplo, as oscilações são uma propriedade intrínseca da dinâmica de carrapatos. Isto significa que uma diminuição na abundância do carrapato em um ano não implica necessariamente que o mesmo vai acontecer no próximo. Ela apresentou seu trabalho em muitas conferências internacionais e no Instituto Isaac Newton de Ciências Matemáticas (Isaac Newton Institute of Mathematical Sciences), em Cambridge, Inglaterra (England), onde foi convidada para participar do Programa de Modelos de epidemias.

Currently, she is an instructor in the Department of Global Health and Population of the Harvard School of Public Health. Since the beginning of this century, she has organized and carried out research on conditions that lead to the emergence, maintenance, and spread of epidemics. Her research encompasses sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs) such as HIV/AIDS, as well as vector-borne diseases, such as Lyme disease, dengue, and Zika virus and Zika fever. Dr. Awerbuch-Friedlander recently researched the spread and control of rabies based on an eco-historical analysis. Her work is interdisciplinary, and some of her publications are co-authored with international scientists and members of different departments of the HSPH and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Ecology and evolutionary biology have traditionally been the dominant fields of mathematical biology, but public health fields are effectively contextualized within them. Conditions contributing to the emergence of epidemics are complex in nature, involving biological, ecological, behavioral, environmental, and socioeconomic factors. Most of her research mathematically models these factors as systems that lend themselves to qualitative and quantitative analysis. These models can be used to explore the effect of each factor in the presence of the others as well as new interventions. Many of these models are based on data collected in the field, whether they concern zoonotic diseases such as the population dynamics of the tick that transmits Lyme disease in the Northeastern part of the United States, or sexually transmitted diseases, such as the relative probabilities of HIV1 and HIV2 infection in a cohort of prostitutes in Senegal. Some of her analytical mathematical models led to fundamental epidemiological discoveries, for example, that oscillations are an intrinsic property of tick dynamics. This means that a decrease in tick abundance in one year does not necessary imply that the same will happen in the next. She presented her work in many international conferences and at the Isaac Newton Institute of Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge, England, where she was invited to participate in the Program on Models of Epidemics.
