Immune programming and genetics
Our node of Immune Programming and Genetics bring together cell and molecular biologists that study immune mechanisms in vascular and blood cells in relation to disease of the lungs, skin, heart and brain. In addition to a wide range of in vitro systems, we use mammalian models, as well as fish and flies extensively to understand mechanisms of physiology that are dysregulated in disease. A substantial focus of academic and clinical interest in our Node is around novel antiplatelet strategies in acute coronary syndromes and genetics in thrombosis and haemostasis. We have strong links with the Bateson Centre and the Florey Institute.
