Overview

The immune response involves the collective behavior of millions of cells of different types acting from the molecular to the organism level. Despite tremendous progress in identifying the many components of the immune system, an integrated predictive theoretical framework and quantitative dynamic models are still lacking. Such models will be crucial for leveraging advances in basic research towards practical applications in disease treatment and prevention. Moreover, modern experimental techniques (e. g. multi-channel flow cytometry, deep sequencing, gene expression arrays, single cell imaging) provide growing amounts of quantitative data requiring mathematical analysis. These experimental advances and combined with recent developments in mathematical modeling approaches make it possible to go beyond simply identifying the molecular components and allow to aim for integrated predictive theories.
