Inflammation and Inflammatory Disease

Chronic inflammation drives diseases from rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis and obesity to immune mediated tissue destruction and scarring of the liver and kidney. It is thus a major cause of chronic disease, morbidity and mortality in the UK. In Birmingham we are elucidating the pathophysiological mechanisms through multidisciplinary translational research. Our internationally recognised research in immune regulation, including cross-cutting expertise in cell trafficking and cellular interactions within tissue microenvironments, underpins a process driven analysis of human disease pathogenesis. The work is integrated with and supported by clinical studies of well-characterised patient cohorts. Knowledge gained from our research is being used to improve the delivery of treatment through the application of biomarkers to characterise, monitor and treat disease and the identification of new therapeutic targets. Our focus is on inflammatory diseases of the joint, eye, liver and kidney.

Information for Participants

Information for particpants of the Chronic Disease Research into Diabetes Study, and for those considering taking part.

Information technologies - Civil Engineering research

Information technologies - virtual reality for structural design; grid computing for large computational systems; knowledge-based decision support system for railway maintenance; computational hardware - coding of simplified DEM code onto a computer chip using field programmable gate arrays or active memory.

Inherited Disorders

Our internationally recognised research into inherited diseases covers a range of clinical specialties and scientific disciplines. Thus research may range from identifying novel human disease genes to understanding the function of a human disease gene product to using cellular and model organisms to develop new treatments for inherited diseases.
