Welcome to the Schiffer Group. Each of our projects involves the use of mathematical models. We use these models not only to generate novel hypotheses that explain findings in existing datasets, but also to inform the design and implementation of clinical and laboratory experiments. The nature of our projects is highly multi-disciplinary and our toolbox expands well beyond modeling. To this end, we are grateful to collaborate with superb clinical and laboratory colleagues at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington. We are always eager to engage in new research partnerships that address clinically important questions in infectious diseases.
