Centre for Inflammation
Our goal is to better understand the mechanisms of pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases to define therapeutic targets and develop and test new therapies.
About the Centre
We are a large, internationally renowned and prolific Centre of 50 researchers. We aim to develop animal models that faithfully represent human, mostly currently respiratory diseases, as possible. We interrogate these models (inflammation, immunity, histology, physiology, lung function, gas exchange analysis) to understand human disease and develop new treatments. We validate findings in patient cells and tissues.
The laboratories operating within this centre are:
