Our understanding of infection, inflammation and immunity promises to impact not only upon infectious disease, but also on other global health issues, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and musculoskeletal disease, where inflammation and the immune system are now recognised to play a key role. Areas we are looking to strengthen range from basic molecular and cellular studies, through modelling and systems biology approaches to translational and clinical research focused around musculoskeletal and cardiovascular diseases, cancer, viral and bacterial infections.
