Best poster at the ILRS Symposium

Poster award for Alexander Tille

At this year's Symposium of the International Leibniz Research School (ILRS),  the poster of Alexander Tille was honored as one of the three best posters. Alexander presented a mathematical model that describes reactions of the human complement system which is crucial for the recognition of microbial invadors. Some pathogens, like the fungus C. albicans, are able to evade these mechanisms and in this way cause severe diseases. The developed mathematical model allows to quantitatively characterise this complex network on molecular and cellular levels and thereby to investigate the impact of different complement components on the system.
