It is now recognised that airway epithelium plays a central role in immunity. Many lung diseases can trace their origins to airway epithelium. In this talk, Professor Bartlett will discuss research that has focused on leveraging epithelial cell anti-microbial innate immunity to prevent respiratory viral disease or blocking pro-inflammatory/pro-fibrotic processes for diseases such as asthma and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
