Abstract:  In this talk Prof. Carmen will introduce some of the work that has been carried at the University of Leeds in the Mathematical Immunology Group. Of interest to us is understanding the mechanisms that regulate T cell mediated immune responses during infection and in cancer. We believe such an understanding will allow us to therapeutically manipulate T cell responses in the fight against viruses, bacteria and tumours.  She will provide a few examples of mathematical models of T cells at the molecular, cellular and population levels and finish with a perspective on the role of mathematical models in adoptive T cell therapies for cancer.
