Mechanisms of Disease and Translational Research

The network of groups that constitutes this theme uses multidisciplinary approaches to understand the origins of and develop new treatments for:

  • heart and blood vessel diseases
  • cancers
  • arthritis
  • chronic respiratory diseases
  • neurodegeneration
  • eye diseases

We have the expertise to translate basic scientific research outcomes from cells studies into proof-of-principle studies in animals and ultimately into new treatments, with the potential to significantly reduce burden of disease in the community.
