NeuronChronic illnesses, such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and asthma, afflict large numbers of people in the United States and other countries. These diseases are complex, and often include components of inflammation or pain.
Faculty in the Chronic Disease Bioscience research cluster are investigating the biological underpinnings of persistent or recurring diseases in animal cell lines and disease models. Their research uncovers roles for the genes, molecules, and cells involved in the initiation and progression of chronic disease states.
This information is then used to develop innovative therapeutic strategies to alleviate diseases of frequent recurrence or long duration in animals and people.
