Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Modelling (SPI-M)

SPI-M gives expert advice to the Department of Health and Social Care and wider UK government on scientific matters relating to the UK’s response to an influenza pandemic (or other emerging human infectious disease threats). The advice is based on infectious disease modelling and epidemiology.

SPI-M is currently reporting to the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) and has representatives from a range of UK institutions with attendance varying as required.

Members are independent to UK government and not paid.
