MIHMES : Multi-scale modelling, from animal Intra-Host to Metapopulation, of mechanisms of pathogen spread to Evaluate control Strategies

MIHMES is an ANR project - investment in the future, co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund of Pays-de-la-Loire (FEDER).

MIHMES aims to produce scientific knowledge and methods to assist in the management of endemic infectious animal diseases and veterinary public health risks. To optimise control programmes, a detailed understanding of the mechanisms underlying the infection process and the allocation of resources for control actions is necessary.


MIHMES is based on a partnership between 5 French teams and a Swedish team, with two main objectives :

  • develop a multi-scale modeling conceptual framework to represent the complex relationships between many biological and system management processes;
  • develop decision-support tools to evaluate the epidemiological and economic effectiveness of prevention and control strategies at the herd, regional and primary production chain levels.
