Forum Goal:

Following the successful introduction of the digital twin paradigm in industry, the use of medical digital twins, computational models personalized to individual patients, has received much attention in recent years, and first prototypes have been deployed successfully. Due to the central role the immune system plays in a plethora of diseases it deserves special attention. Its complexity makes computational modeling a key technology for translational applications.

This 2-day event will bring together a select group of international experts in immunology, medicine, computational biology, and data science to discuss opportunities and obstacles in the development and use of immune digital twins in medicine. The group will determine the outlines and requirements of a research program to make them a reality within a wide spectrum of translational applications. Results will include a journal publication and a report that can be used for several purposes, in particular with public and private funding bodies.
