The mission of the Centre is to undertake research at the highest standards into the mechanisms of immune/inflammatory disease of man to define their immunopathological basis so that new therapeutics can be developed on the basis of clear understanding of disease processes.
Aims & objectives
- To conduct clinical and laboratory research targeting critical gaps of knowledge regarding the immunopathogenesis of important human inflammatory diseases.
- To form a critical mass of compatible scientists and clinician researchers to collaborate, value-add and translate insights from our own and other research to clinical applications.
- To share infrastructure and provide a focus for discussion and education between members of Centres and with colleagues within the University and collaborators and relevant key scientists nationally and internationally.
- To foster the career paths of talented younger clinical and basic scientists in academic and research endeavours.
- To collaborate with clinical colleagues to enhance the quality of clinical care and ensure translation of research developments into better clinical outcomes.
- To engage in science and medical undergraduate program to stimulate and engage undergraduate students and improve educational outcome.
