Dynamics of CD4+ T cells in HIV-1 Infection
Ruy M. Ribeiro,
Los Alamos National Laboratory –
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.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
