The principle interest of the Renshaw lab is understanding how inflammation resolves or heals.

If we can understand this, we are a step closer to understanding how that fails in inflammatory diseases and to developing new treatments to treat failed inflammation resolution.

At present, work on inflammation breaks down into 5 main areas:

We also have a successful group working on in vivo host-pathogen interaction.

We use a number of models, but our go-to system for seeing innate immunity in action is the Zebrafish.
