Cell stress can happen through a variety of agents including ionising radiation, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and failure of cellular homeostatic mechanisms.
The cell stress, inflammation and immunity program has ongoing projects concerning the molecular basis of DNA repair, effect of ER stress and autophagy in chronic intestinal inflammation and neurodegenerative disorders, as well as treatment strategies to counter cellular stress and reduce chronic inflammation.
Current research projects are:
TUNEL and Muc2 precursor (Goblet-cell specific) dual stained image from Winnie distal colon. Blue nuclei: DAPI. TUNEL-Muc2 positive cells are shown in circles.
