Jekyll and Hyde: The Monstrous Side of Inflammation

Inflammation is one way your body fights infection, injury, and disease. However, what happens when things go wrong?  In this Open Lecture Professor Felicity Gavins  discusses the ‘Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’ sides of our immune system and inflammation and how, although inflammation is a good thing, playing a central role in healing, it too can have a more sinister side, becoming dysregulated and potentially leading to diseases such as heart disease, stroke, cancer and dementia (including Alzheimer’s disease).
