Skin Inflammation Genetics Group
Department of Medical & Molecular Genetics
Our main research interests are:
- The genetic basis of rare and common forms of psoriasis, which we investigate as readily accessible models of inflammation.
- The role of interleukin-36 in tissue-specific and systemic inflammation
We carry out both genetic (whole-exome sequencing) and functional studies (transcriptomics, in-vitro assays, ex-vivo analyses of patient cells), as we believe that this integrated approach has unique potential to provide novel insights into inflammatory processes.
