Oct. 6-7, 2017: 3rd Workshop on Virus Dynamics

Oct. 9-10, 2017: Hengstberger-Symposium on Systems Immunology & Vaccine Design

Welcome to the Mathematical Immunology Group!

The interaction of viruses, host cells and immune responses represents a complex biological system. Using mathematical models and computational simulations, we analyze experimental and clinical data to understand how infectious pathogens, such as HIV, HCV and Malaria, spread within a host, and how effective immune responses and therapeutic interventions against these pathogens can be designed.


Our work ranges from studying single cell behaviour, over analyzing cell population dynamics up to following the spread of viruses within a population. Thereby, we are using various mathematical techniques from applied mathematics and statistics, as well as sophisticated computational simulations. 


All analyses are done in close collaboration to experimental and clinical scientists.The research group Mathematical Immunology is part of the Center for Modeling and Simulation in the Biosciences (BIOMS) belonging to the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR) of Heidelberg University. We are located at the BioQuant-Center.
