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 

All models are wrong, but some are useful (George Box, 1976).

Where we are

We recently moved to the Bonn Venusberg campus, joining the Institute for Experimental Oncology (IEO Biomathematics) and the Interdisciplinary research unit "Mathematics in the Life Sciences" (IML).

Visit us at German Rheumatism Research Center Berlin (DRFZ).

The Thurley group is associated with the Institute for Theoretical Biology (ITB) at HU Berlin.
