Our PhD/MPhil Inflammation Sciences programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Inflammation Sciences.

Inflammation sciences combine cutting edge research with translational biology.

Principal investigators come from a variety of disciplines (medical sciences, mucosal immunology, cell biology, genetics) to address key questions in the inflammation field.

Many projects are disease-focused, with an emphasis on understanding mechanism or addressing an unmet clinical need.

Investigations are carried out using both human tissue and animal models to accelerate translation.

State-of-the-art core facilities in flow cytometry, imaging, microscopy, bioinformatics and transgenics provide progressive approaches to complex research questions.

Examples of research programmes include:
- Inflammation, tissue recovery and repair

- Mucosal tissue homeostasis

- Immune responses in the intestine

- Skin inflammation

- Neuroinflammation

- Lung immunity

- Infections and allergens in asthma

- Fungal lung disease

- Biomarkers in COPD

- Understanding food allergy
