Research Summary

Dr Fullerton's primary research interest is the aetiology and mechanistic drivers of critical illness-induced immune suppression. He is investigating the contribution of a dysregulated inflammatory response, in particular resolution pathways and eicosanoids, to observed innate immune effector cell functional impairments in the intensive care population. His work is aimed at better stratifying the critically ill at a biochemical, transcriptomic and functional level, identifying novel therapeutic opportunities that may be translated into clinical practice.
