Inflammation Logo

Inflammation is a common theme across several areas of Biomedical research, in particular in Immunology and Infection, Vascular Biology and Diabetes, Cancer and Neuroscience. The importance of these fields of biomedical research is exemplified by the fact that 30-40% of annual deaths worldwide are a direct consequence of medical disorders or diseases central to these disciplines. Inflammation is a host protective response against infection, but is a pathogenic (disease-causing) response in autoimmune diseases, and is also a critical precipitating factor in cancer and many neurodegenerative diseases. The capacity to modulate inflammation is central to the development of therapeutic agents against these diseases.
