Inflammation and Immunology
Inflammation is a biological response to potential danger or damage to organs in our body. But with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis and many others, our own immune system becomes dysregulated and turns against our organs.1
These conditions may be painful and debilitating, and can take an immense toll on people’s quality of life.
Our scientists are focused on three specific areas; rheumatology, gastroenterology and medical dermatology. Our innovation in the short term is to enable patients to thrive in remission through new immunosuppressives, and in the future improve our understanding of how to promote the restoration of the immune system and tissue health.
