New paper about Ptolemaic political activities in PloS ONE
Congratulation for a new study in PLoS ONE to Tomáš Glomb, Adam Mertel, Zdeněk Pospíšil and Aleš Chalupa.
Anestis Karasaridis has succeeded with his grant proposal “The Antonine Plague in Rome: Comparative Modeling of Different Pathogens” in the grant competition for doctoral students (IGA) organized by Masaryk University.
In the following year, Anestis will build a compartmental model of disease spread in the city of Rome in the 2nd half of the 2nd century CE to identify the most plausible cause of the disease outbreak known as the Antonine Plague. Since there is currently no molecular evidence for this disease event, the output of this project might bridge that gap and anchor Anestis’ dissertation research of the relationship between pandemics and the spread of Early Christianity in more stable research foundations.
