Institute of Inflammation and Ageing

From basic science to clinical trials, we cover every aspect of research into inflammation, the role it plays in ageing and the response to trauma.

Research themes

  • Acute Care Research

    Providing evidence based management of acute illness across the life-course and specialties

  • Ageing and Frailty

    Understanding the mechanisms that underlie the loss of immunity or musculoskeletal health with ageing and trauma, using this knowledge to develop interventions.

  • Neuroscience, Trauma and Ophthalmology

    Development of novel strategies, tools, diagnostics and technologies focussed on inflammation, scarring, regeneration and repair.

  • Rheumatology

    Research focussed on inflammatory rheumatic diseases; in particular the pathobiology, comorbidity and patient reported outcomes.
