Mathematical modeling is becoming established in the immunologist’s toolbox as a method to gain insight into the dynamics of the immune response and its components. No more so than in the case of the study of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. I will review different areas of the study of the dynamics of CD4+ T-cells in the setting of HIV, where modeling played important and diverse roles in helping us understand CD4+ T-cell homeostasis and the effect of HIV infection on T-cell dynamics, and the processes of T-cell production and destruction.
