“Quantifying the impact of cellular organization and movement on immune responses to Mycobacterium tuberculosis: A agent-based modeling approach”
Elsje Pienaar, PhD
Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering
Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering
Dr. Pienaar is an Assistant Professor in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University. She earned her MS and PhD in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and did postdoctoral work in Microbiology, Immunology and Chemical engineering at the University of Michigan as well as at Linköping University, Sweden. Her laboratory uses computational simulations of within-host pathogen, immune and drug dynamics to optimize treatment of infectious diseases. Current projects in the lab include TB, HIV, Non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections and Ebola virus.
The October TRAC Seminar Series on “Computational Models in TB” is presented by the Bioinformatics, Modeling & Biostatistics Core.
