Presented by Head of Dentistry, Professor Alan Nimmo

Inflammation is the most common disease process, but it is a double-edged sword. Acute inflammation is commonly a protective mechanism as the body tries to deal with infection, or initiate repair. However, uncontrolled inflammatory responses are responsible for significant morbidity and mortality. It is generally viewed that these negative aspects are associated with chronic inflammation. However, excessive acute inflammatory responses can be just as detrimental. Alan Nimmo will explore some of the detrimental issues associated with inflammation, and recount some of personal experiences in trying to develop novel anti-inflammatory agents.

This event is worth 2 CPD points.
