Inflammasomes: mediators of immune defence but culprits in inflammatory disease

During injury or infection, our body’s immune system protects us by launching inflammation.

But uncontrolled inflammation drives diseases such as gout, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease and cancer.

The Inflammasome Lab is defining the molecular and cellular processes of inflammation.

We seek to unravel the secrets of inflammasomes – protein complexes at the heart of inflammation and disease – to allow for new therapies to fight human diseases.
