Prof Robin McAnulty's research group focusses on investigating the pathogenesis of diseases in which inflammation and aberrant deposition of extracellular matrix proteins are key features. Diseases of particular interest include pulmonary fibrosis, asthma and mesothelioma. We encompass a wide spectrum of research, from fundamental basic studies through to translational research utilising our expanding banks of tissue and cells. A major emphasis of the groups’ research is to understand the role and interactions between stimulatory and inhibitory mediators (e.g. transforming growth factor beta isoforms and prostaglandin E2 respectively) in regulating the response to tissue injury, repair and connective tissue disease. We are also developing a major interest in understanding the role of epigenetics in fibroproliferative disease.
