Chronic infection is the underlying cause of many illnesses, including heart and vascular disease, obesity, diabetes and multiple sclerosis. In order to develop new therapeutic strategies against these diseases, detailed knowledge of the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying the infection response is needed. Tom Seijkens is looking at the role of hematopoietic stem cells in the origin of infections, particularly atherosclerosis (calcium thickening of artery walls).
