Trauma Immunopathology Research Laboratory
Traumatic injury is a major cause of death in the first four decades of life, outnumbering both heart disease and cancer.
The Trauma Immunopathology Research Laboratory is a multidisciplinary laboratory devoted to the study of traumatic and burn injury. Studies within the laboratory encompass both laboratory and clinical research and are directed towards improving our understanding of the body's reaction to injury and infection at an immunological, pathological and physiological level. It is our hope that the systematic analysis of the body's response to traumatic injury can lead to the development of improved and innovative therapies for the treatment of burn and trauma patients.
