The human body’s innate immune system is its first line of defence when it comes to preventing infection, signalling perceived threats and eliminating microbes before they can cause harm. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) and other pattern recognition receptors play a vital role in this. Because a rigorous inflammatory response can also have negative consequences, inflammation inhibitors also play a crucial role in regulating immune responses and limiting unnecessary tissue destruction. The aim of Dana Blok’s research is to elucidate the role of such negative regulators and associated signalling molecules in pneumonia and sepsis caused by common human pathogens.
