Since 2010 Michael Meyer-Hermann heads the Department Systems Immunology at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig (Germany). He studied Physics, Mathematics, and Philosophy in Frankfurt/Main and Paris and accomplished his Ph.D. in Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics in Frankfurt/Main.

He, then, initiated new research groups for Systems Immunology in Dresden (Germany), Oxford (UK) and at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS). In addition to developing new methods in Theoretical Cell Biology, his research aims at understanding the adaptive immune system and the interaction of the immune and the nervous system. He wants to establish mathematical methods as state-of-the-art tool in Biology and Immunology to improve research of diseases and therapies. 

To see the immune system with the eyes of mathematics – that is the goal of the department Systems Immunology. Mathematical models help to faster and better understand diseases that are associated with immune functions. Read here how scientists use mathematics to investigate chronic inflammatory diseases, the regulation of adaptive immune responses, diabetes, cancer irradiation and aging.
