Infection and Inflammation
Our Infection and Inflammation Theme is dedicated to clinical care and research aimed at improving the understanding, prevention and treatment of infections and inflammatory diseases. The Theme harnesses the knowledge and expertise of health professionals and researchers across multiple clinical sites, and across the full continuum of research from basic science through to implementation and health services research.
A key area of interest within the Theme is the response of the immune system to challenges including transplantation and chronic diseases. Transplantation is in some ways an ideal ‘condition’ to assess across the translational spectrum. It also links immunology, inflammation and infection within the theme.
