With the help of our partners in industry, we carry out basic and translational research into inflammatory diseases with the aim of developing new ideas for medicine.
Diseases such as allergy, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, transplant rejection and rheumatoid arthritis are all associated with inflammation as part of their root cause or symptoms. A multitude of other diseases, from cancer to cardiac disease, also involve inflammation.
Scientists at the MCCIR work with clinicians and industry to drive innovative discoveries in our understanding of inflammation to help develop new medicines.
At the MCCIR, we aim to understand the processes that underlie health and why these don't happen in inflammatory disease, and thereby determine what can be done to maintain or restore health.
We hope that our unique and interdisciplinary approach will overcome many of the obstacles long associated with treating inflammatory disease.
