The Centre for Inflammation Biology and Cancer Immunology (CIBCI) aims to advance knowledge of the molecular and cellular mechanisms of inflammation to open roads to novel understanding, diagnosis and treatment of inflammation and its associated pathologies, and to enhance our understanding of the relationship between inflammation and cancer.
Research in the CIBCI is interdisciplinary. We use cellular and molecular approaches in in vitro and in vivo model systems, to investigate the molecular and cellular pathways and networks that control inflammation. Research teams work on basic models of inflammation and cancer immunobiology with extension to human disease, supported by internal and external collaboration networks.
The Centre is in New Hunt's House, Guy’s Campus, with the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics with expertise in molecular and cell biology, physics, chemistry and maths, and the MRC Centre for Developmental Neurobiology.
