Se our website here. Our group tries to understand how all the dfferent processes in T-cells are coming together. While the biological research field has been very good at linking many individual processes, we are yet to be able to put all of these in one single consistent model. This leads to a number of deep questions that we need to anwer. How many gaps are there in our knowledge? How can we know what we do not know, and how can we take this into account? How can we handle this much knowledge? Are the things we "know" truly correct? How far can we push reductionism and is positivism too much a burden to bear? How much of the thinking can we let a computer perform? These questions, and beyond, are keeping us well occupied. We hope our deeper understanding will accelerate research and help us diseases such as cancer.
