Grant Lythe, from the University of Leeds, UK, is focused on stochastic models of immune cell, and immune system, dynamics. In collaboration with academic and industrial partners, he seeks to describe T cell homeostasis, the TCR repertoire and dynamics of responses to infection. He coordinates "Quantitative T-cell Immunology" (QuanTI), an Initial Training network with partners in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany and the Netherlands. He has been invited by Jordi García-Ojalvo (UPF).
