About

The Centre for Inflammation at The University of Edinburgh aims to promote the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory diseases through interdisciplinary study of the initiation, regulation and resolution of inflammatory responses and provision of an outstanding environment for research training in the field.

Overview

The Centre for Inflammation at The University of Edinburgh investigators aim to characterise and manipulate key control points in inflammation. 

We have particular interest in inflammatory diseases of the lung and kidney but the principles derived will have ready application to inflammatory responses in the liver, bowel, bone/joint and skin. There is also increasing development of research in the CIR into the links between inflammation and cancer.

Training and support

Generic training in presentation skills, project management and writing skills is delivered through the University of Edinburgh's transferable skills programme.

Facilities

The CIR is a multidisciplinary team of research groups under the directorship of Professor Chris Gregory. The CIR consists of more than 180 researchers, is equipped with state-of-the-art apparatus and is supported by external grant funding. The CIR is now located in the purpose-built Queen's Medical Research Institute along with the centres for Reproductive Biology and Cardiovascular Sciences.

Programme Structure

CIR investigators aim to characterise and manipulate key control points in inflammation. We focus on:

  • inhibiting the initiation of inflammation by blocking immunologically specific triggers and by modulating cellular and tissue responses to injurious stimuli
  • finding new approaches to promote beneficial regulation of established inflammatory responses so as to limit tissue injury
  • promoting safe resolution of inflammation and restoration of the structure and function of the perturbed tissue
