The role of Kupffer cells during non-sterile and sterile inflammation

Project Details

Description

Kupffer cells, also known as Browicz-Kupffer cells and stellate macrophages, are specialized macrophages located in the liver lining the walls of the sinusoids that form part of the reticuloendothelial system (RES) (or mononuclear phagocyte system). In this research project we well determine their role during non-sterile and sterile inflammation.
