Major research discoveries, ususally linked to a high profile publication.
The Inflammasome Lab have uncovered precisely how caspase-1 is activated upon inflammasomes, which has revealed a new model for inflammasome signalling, function, and signal shutdown.
The inflammasome special issue of Journal of Molecular Biology, co-edited by Kate Schroder, Thirumala-Devi Kanneganti, Feng Shao and Petr Broz, is now online.
This month we said farewell to Kaiwen Chen, who leaves the Inflammasome Lab for an exciting Postdoctoral position in Petr Broz's Lab in Switzerland, and Jennifer (Cookie) Dou who is embarking on an exciting new career in animation.

Kaiwen Chen, Jelena Bezbradica and
Congratulations to Dr Rebecca Coll, for publishing her research, characterising a small-molecule inhibitor of the NLRP3 inflammasome, in the prestigious journal Nature Medicine.
The Inflammasome Lab is a group of researchers led by Professor Kate Schroder at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, The University of Queensland.
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.
