Dying cell links to autoimmunity

Professor Ben Kile.

The NHMRC recently paid us a visit to get an update on Professor Ben Kile's research. Previously highlighted in the NHMRC's Ten of the Best 2011 for his research into blood platelet survival, Professor Kile has now turned his attention to looking at the link between dying cells, the inflammatory response and autoimmunity. The NHMRC recorded a short video of Professor Kile outlining where his research is now focused, and the importance of the NHMRC funding basic research that has clear clinical implications. Watch the video.
