Adaptation of the previously developed virtual infection model of Aspergillus fumigatus in a *human* alveolus.
This model comprises a hybrid agent-based model of a single murine alveolus. The alveolus is represented in a realistic to-scale representation and contains the cell types of alveolar epithelial cells (AEC) of type 1 and 2 as well as the pores of Kohn (PoK).
Furthermore, in this model, depending on the infection dose multiple A. fumigatus conidium are inserted into the alveolus and the
