Thurley group at University Hospital Bonn, Institute for Experimental Oncology (IEO)

Biomathematics - Systems Biology of Inflammation 

We investigate the regulation of immune responses by quantitative data analysis and mathematical modeling, in close collaboration with immuno-biologists and clinical scientists. 


We believe that a key to quantitative understanding of immune responses is cell-cell communication among immune cells.


We are an interdisciplinary group combining backgrounds in  (bio-)physics, biology, applied mathematics and statistics.
