Systems Medicine of Infectious Diseases
Systems Medicine aims at gaining a holistic understanding of health and diseases that leads to personalized medicine. The research of this group aims at understanding the underlying mechanisms between the immune system and diseases. Other objectives are tailoring effective immune interventions and treatments in susceptible groups of the society like seniors and immunocompromised patients and developing new mathematical and computational methods to overcome the challenges for the translation of Systems Medicine into the clinic. All this is achieved by integrating clinical data into phenomenological models and by using computer simulations.
