Mathematical models have begun to play an important role in the study of biology. We will examine this role further by analyzing a specific model of the innate immune system's response to a bacterial infection. Beginning with the biological background of the model, we will move into an explanation of a specific model of this situation followed by a critique of the model and future work to be done with the topic.
