Fibrosis is defined as the hardening and/or scarring of various organs including the heart, kidney and lung; and occurs when injured organs fail to repair properly. Abnormal wound healing can lead to an excessive deposition of extracellular matrix components, primarily collagen. The eventual replacement of normal tissue with scar tissue leads to organ stiffness and ultimately, organ failure. Despite this, current therapies mainly offer symptomatic relief with no effective and safe cures available. Hence, we are working towards developing and characterising novel and more direct anti-fibrotic therapies.
We're always interested in collaborating with bright and motivated researchers, clinicians and industry. Whether you want to research, study or partner with us to accelerate our discoveries, find out about the work we do.
