Centre for Therapeutic Innovation

We transform and translate innovation in drug discovery and development to create effective medicines for the benefit of patients.

Our research

The work of the centre is helping to translate discoveries into new ways to diagnose and treat diseases such as inflammatory arthritis, lung fibrosis, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Our research is split into two core areas.

Inflammatory disease

Immune cell

We conduct translational research in the area of inflammation and immune regulation with a focus on rheumatology, cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Drug delivery
