Identification of critical genes involved in the pathogenesis of human chronic inflammatory diseases

Research Project Outline

The aim of this study is to identify critical genes, which are involved in the onset or progression of chronic inflammation, using genetic analysis of familial inflammatory diseases. If successful, these studies would aid in revealing previously unappreciated molecular mechanisms of chronic inflammation, and thereby, contribute to establish innovative therapeutic strategies for human inflammatory diseases.
