Inflammation underpins hundreds of health conditions, contributing to more than 50 percent of deaths worldwide and an escalating burden of disease. Chronic inflammation leads to cancer, lung, heart, kidney and liver diseases, asthma, infertility, endometriosis, neurodegenerative conditions such as multiple sclerosis and autoimmune diseases like diabetes; it’s also the single biggest cause of death from COVID-19.

Hudson Institute has Australia’s largest team of inflammation researchers, whose sole focus is developing treatments to prevent or alleviate inflammation-driven diseases.
