The Immunobiology and Infection Subgroup was created to bring together researchers in the SMB community who are interested in the modeling and analysis of immune processes in human disease and of host-pathogen interactions. Our broad objective is to discuss various topics including - within-host infectious diseases - host immune responses - causes and effects of inflammation - disease progression and outcome - integration of experimental and clinical data into models - model-driven experimental design In our 2021 mini-symposium, we will focus on infection and host immune responses to both infectious and non-infectious insults. We will have speakers with expertise in these areas. The talks will also showcase diverse modeling styles and integration with data.
