A Case Study of the Influenza Pandemic 1889–1990

The Wellcome Trust has funded a pilot project to explore the 1889 influenza pandemic in depth, in particular attempting to develop a model for correlating global and local environmental conditions with historical patterns of disease spread. The Centre for Medical History is collaborating with colleagues at the Met Office in attempting to reconstruct the possible impact of environmental variables on morbidity and mortality patterns.
