Wider research context: Inflammatory diseases are a major cause of morbidity, disability, and mortality and the most significant cause of death worldwide, and ample evidence suggests that chronic low-grade and sterile inflammation are important contributors to aging. In the physiological context, inflammatory processes are required for host defense, clearance of necrotic cells, wound healing, and tissue regeneration. When dysregulated, however, inflammation can turn against the host, causing tissue damage, organ dysfunction, as well as acute and chronic disease. Research questions and objectives: We will assess mechanisms that tune the fine balance between regeneration and degeneration in acute or chronic inflammation.
