K.G. Jebsen Inflammation Research Centre

Disorders of chronic inflammation affect a large fraction of the population and frequently leads to severe dysfunction, fibrosis and organ failure.

About the centre

With the goal of improving treatment, the vision of The K.G. Jebsen Inflammation Research Centre (JIRC) is to address some simple, but big and yet unresolved questions essential for understanding mechanisms of chronic inflammatory diseases.

  • Why does inflammation not resolve? - what determines whether inflammation is transient or becomes chronic?
  • How does inflammation progress to fibrosis? - to what extent do disease-specific factors and individual patient susceptibility drive chronic inflammatory processes to tissue destruction and scarring rather than to repair
