Inflammasome dysregulation drives pathology in a wide variety of human diseases (e.g. septic shock, gout, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases, various cancers). We seek to understand the mechanisms by which inflammasomes drive human diseases, and use this knowledge to develop new inflammasome inhibitors.
