Frontiers in viral dynamics

Accurate mathematical models describing the natural history and dynamics of viral infection can be constructed using data from carefully designed and controlled experiments. These models can be used to extract important quantitative information such as the fold-change in virus production caused by a specific viral mutation or the mode of action and/or efficacy of a novel antiviral compound. The minisymposium will provide examples of how mathematics can provide unique and novel insights to advance knowledge in the field of virology and help drive the development of novel interventions in medicine. The presentations will inform the audience about recent advances in the quantitative understanding of virological mechanics, the optimal experiments to extract the greatest possible amount of quantitative information about a particular viral strain and how this information can impact therapy for viral infections.
