Mike Murphy and his group collaborate towards a major breakthrough in inflammation research

Mitochondria are repurposed from energy generators to drivers of inflammation.

A collaboration involving nine institutions, including the MRC MBU, has led to a report in Cell on a significant breakthrough in our understanding of inflammation, a key process in our bodies which occurs during infection and injury, but which can go awry in a range of inflammatory diseases.

The lead authors of this report are based at Trinity College Dublin.
