The iRiSC - Inflammatory Response and Infection Susceptibility Center includes researchers from Örebro University and Örebro University Hospital (USÖ), and collaborate with a number of national and international research groups.
Areas of research
- Environment and Health
The Research platform iRiSC - Inflammatory Response and Infection Susceptibility Centre is a collaborative network of researchers at Örebro University and Örebro University Hospital (USÖ), together with a number of national and international research groups. The research at iRiSC is focused on understanding response to stimuli and stressors i.e. microbes and their pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) as well as danger-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs), e.g. nano particles. By connecting different disciplines and research fields, iRiSC is a translational platform; bringing together knowledge and experience on particle-induced diseases, specific bacteria and their disease course, host response mechanisms and the role of genetics.
