Inflammation & Immunology
Innovating novel therapeutic methods and management strategies for the treatment of inflammation and immune system-associated disease and disorders.
Inflammation is a complex host response developed in an individual as a primary response to any foreign material or cell and tissue injury. In certain cases, this primary defense mechanism of the host goes overboard and becomes a base for various diseases and disorders. Such scenarios are well defined in various clinical conditions like sepsis, various autoimmune disorders, and certain infectious diseases like leprosy, tuberculosis, etc. The pathophysiology of the aforementioned clinical complications associated with inflammation and adverse immune reaction requires a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to understand the disease complexity better. Such approaches might help us in the development of novel therapeutic methods and management strategies for the treatment of inflammation and immune system-associated disease and disorders.
Area of Interest
MGMARI “inflammation and immunology” research group focuses on the following areas. Apart from studying disease biology, the group also takes up global issues, as and when needed, to provide answers for global issues falling under the purview of inflammation and immunology.
- Cytokine and chemokine biology
- Immune regulation and tolerance induction
- Inflammation in infectious diseases
- Immune deficiency
- We use our organic association with the medical colleges of SBV and other regional institutions to capture a fairly large population landscape who come for treatment
- Fair use of novel tools and technologies available in-house and outsourced basis
- Continuous engagement with clinicians for patient interfacing and conducting trails, as and when required
