During injury or infection, our body’s immune system protects us by launching inflammation.
But uncontrolled inflammation drives diseases such as gout, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease and cancer. Learn more about our current research.

The Inflammasome Lab is defining the molecular and cellular processes of inflammation. We seek to unravel the secrets of inflammasomes – protein complexes at the heart of inflammation and disease – to allow for new therapies to fight human diseases. Learn more about us.

Our research findings have been published in top journals including Cell, Nature Medicine, PNAS USA and Cell Reports.
