Congratulations to Dr Lynne Prince!

Dr Lynne Prince has received funding from the British Lung Foundation for a project grant to study the roles of Pellino 1, a TLR signalling molecule, in human macrophages. Dr Prince intends the project to study the roles of Pellino 1 in inflammatory signalling and to explore differences between Pellino 1 expression and function in macrophages isolated from healthy volunteers and patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

It is hoped the study will identify novel targets for new therapeutic strategies for patients with COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). This is excellent news for the Department and we want to commend Dr Prince on her success!
