Multiscale Mechanistic Modeling in Immunology (in celebration of Denise Kirschner’s 60th birthday)
Monday, July 17 at 04:00pm
Marissa Renardy, Caitlin Hult
Denise Kirschner is a pioneering woman in mathematical biology, a strong mentor to numerous graduate students and postdocs, and is a past president (2017-2019) and long-time member of SMB. This minisymposium is in celebration of Denise Kirschner's 60th birthday and consists of talks by her current and former postdocs. The topic focuses on multi-scale and mechanistic modeling in immunobiology and infection, with applications including oncology, tuberculosis, and non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections. Speakers from industry and academia will highlight the importance of mathematical modeling in optimizing treatment regimens, interpreting imaging data, and understanding disease progression, among other topics.
