Projects: Spatio-temporal dynamics of Dengue virus infection and innate immune responses at single cell resolution



The goal of my master's thesis is to get a better understanding of the spatio- temporal interactions of Dengue virus and the immune system on a single cell level. Using live cell imaging data of viral infection and immune responses, I will start by tracking the cells and extracting characteristic properties of the system such as motility and proliferation. This information will then serve as a staring point for modeling and simulation of infection and immune processes using a cellular Potts model.
