We are the Computational Immunology Group at the Data Science group at the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. We are jointly affiliated with the Department of Tumor Immunology at the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences, Radboud University Medical Center.
We study one of nature's most amazing creations, the adaptive immune system, from a computational and information-centric perspective. How do cells in the immune system process information? How do they learn, forget, and get confused? How do they collaborate with each other to make better decisions collectively than they could individually? We strive to harness the insights we gain for the benefit of both immunology and computer science. We have been involved in cancer research, the development of vaccines, and research into viruses, but we have also made important contributions to building better nature-inspired machine learning algorithms. Our group is diverse in many respects and hosts computer scientists, a medical doctor and a molecular biologist under the same umbrella. We are passionate about good science and we care about doing things well and getting them right.
We are a multidisciplinary team consisting of a biologist, a medical doctor, and three computer scientists.

Most of the time, you can find us on the 2nd floor of the Mercator 1 building (Toernooiveld 212). To get there from the train station, you can take the “Heyendaal Shuttle” towards the campus until you reach the the stop “Huygensgebouw”. Staying on the same side of the road, walk a few metres up the hill and turn left. At the crossroads with the Kapittelweg, cross the street on your left to reach the Mercator 1 building. Once inside the building, go to the 2nd floor and ask someone where to find us.
