Data Analysis is Progressing

Since the completion of our trip during the summer we have each been very busy working back in Boston on the data we collected. Due to the generosity of the ICDDR,B, we have a lot to work through to help us to prepare for the next stages of the project.

Currently we are working on analyzing data on cholera spread in the Matlab region of Bangladesh from the past 10 years to see if there are any discernible patterns. We are also working with some geographic data in order to create an interactive map application that can be used to visually explore the cholera trends. As there is a considerable amount of data, we expect this stage to take some time, but we firmly believe it is important to understand the traditional trends cholera shows before we can look ahead.

In addition to the data analysis we have been researching a variety of different major research grants that we plan on applying to in order to continue this project into the future. We also have added a new member to our team, Tara, who is assisting with the data work.

We would like to thank all of our supports once again. Without the help you’ve provided us with, we would not be able to complete this work.
