Immune Inflammation Laboratory

 

  • Description
    • The Immune Inflammation Laboratory's main research theme is studying changes in the immune response during physiological and pathological aging.

      More specifically, the laboratory's researchers are interested in the intracellular signaling governing immune cells subsequent to stimulation. They are also investigating how lipids, hormones, and antioxidants affect immune response.

      Inflammation is the body's normal response to harmful stimuli. Fulminant or chronic inflammation can even become a physiological problem, as in the case of aging. It appears that silent inflammation can occur during the aging process, leading to the development of age-related diseases such as atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, and cancer.
