The role of innate immunity in traumatic brain injury-induced immune suppression.

Project: Research project

Project Details


Infection is a highly relevant and lethal complication of TBI. We hypothesize that monocytes/macrophages initiate the pathogenesis of TBI-induced immune dysfunction by creating and driving a systemic anti-inflammatory milieu resulting in increased infectious mortality after TBI.
