Event Title

Periodicity and Synchronization in Malaria Infection with Immune Response

Description

Three scientists—Bruce A. Beutler, Jules A. Hoffmann, and Ralph M. Steinman—won the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discoveries on how the innate and adaptive phases of the immune response are activated. Their work provided novel insights into disease mechanisms and has opened up new avenues for the development of prevention and therapy against infections, cancer, and inflammatory diseases.

In this talk, Ruan will use malaria as an example to explain how both innate immunity and adaptive immunity fight against malaria infection. He will also use an ODE model to explain the within-host dynamics of malaria infection with immune response.
