New Interdisciplinary Research Unit (IRU) to bridge Mathematics and Immunology
Together with additional collaborating scientists of the HCM, the IRU will develop sophisticated new methods for the improved analysis of large and complex data sets as for example generated in the context of single cell sequencing. Furthermore, biomathematical expertise will allow mathematical modeling of the motion and migrational behavior of immune cells. Another example is the mathematical modeling of tumor immunotherapies and the application of deep learning to the analysis of multispectral imaging of immune cell infiltrates.
Moreover, one of the highly ambitious goals of our collaborative effort with the HCM is the development of mathematical algorithms that allow the characterization of local and systemic immune network regulation based on the data sets generated in research programs 1 to 4.
