Research theme

Inflammation is a host response against diverse stresses including infection with viruses and bacteria. In addition, inflammation is revealed to be involved in various disease such as autoimmunity, cancer and metabolic syndrome. We are aiming to uncover the molecular mechanisms of inflammation and its regulation in the innate immune system by using genetically modified animals. Our current focus in on the transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of inflammatory genes. A member is also studying inflammation and redox regulation.
