  • Dr. Nikolaos Sfakianakis has been offered and accepted a Lecturer position at the School of Mathematics & Statistics, University of St. Andrews, Scotland, UK.

    In this new role he will pursue further his research in Mathematical Biology within a very active and diverse academic environment.

    December 2018

  • Dr. Nikolaos Sfakianakis has been awarded a grant from the European Mathematical Society (EMS), the Simons Foundation, and the Institut Mittag-Leffler (IML) to organize a scientific meeting under the title "Days on multiscale modelling in tissue and cancer growth".

    This meeting will bring together some of the most active and established mathematics research groups across Europe, working on the different scales relevant to cancer growth and tissue formation. The aim is to address some of the main open questions of the field, enhance the synergies between the groups, and plan collective future endeavors.

  • Maria Barbarossa has been awarded a research grant for the organisation of a scientific interdisciplinary Workshop (2018, date to be announced) in the framework of the Scientific Computing Initiative (ZUK 5.4).

    The meeting has been designed to foster and strengthen research in mathematical immunoepidemiology, bringing together mathematicians, epidemiologists and immunologists to find a common denominator and consider shared questions from different points of view. The workshop shall contribute to identify proper mathematical tools for modeling the interplay of the immune status of the host and the dynamics of the disease at the population level, and to provide realistic mathematical description of how the fields of immunology and epidemiology are correlated.

  • Our paper on comparison of cytokine-dependent and cytokine-independent leukemias has been just published in Scientific Reports:

    T. Stiehl, AD. Ho, A. Marciniak-Czochra, "Mathematical modeling of the impact of cytokine response of acute myeloid leukemia cells on patient prognosis", Scientific Reports 8:2809, doi:10.1038/s41598-018-21115-4

    Main result: Quantitative mathematical modeling suggests that feedback-independent leukemic cells growth is related to poor patient survival. Model fitting allows to assign patients to different risk groups based on their individual leukemic cell dynamics.
