    Simulation software for antibiotics effect prediction

    Project:

    Antibiotics resistance is a huge issue that is also getting more public awareness due to its criticality. An important part of addressing this problem is the correct usage of antibiotics. For this one has to know if an antibiotic is effective against a certain bacterial strain and how it should be dosed. We are implementing a software platform that allows users to predict the probability of successful treatment based on the bacterial strain and the type of drug and the dose and regimen. This software should be accessible via a web interface that is programmed in R and Shiny.

    Internship Goals:

    1. Implement a mathematical model of antibiotics pharmacokinetics.
    2. Implement a mathematical model of antibiotics effect.
    3. Develop an interface in shiny for the mathematical models.
    4. Rigorous testing of the interface for usability.

    Requirements:

    • Rigorous, excellent analytical skills, pro-active.
    • Entrepreneurial spirit.
    • Good at communication of scientific topics.
    • Proficient in oral and written English.
    • Good mathematical and statistical skills.
