Parainflammation, chronic inflammation and retinal degenerative diseases

Heping Xu, MD, PhD, is Professor of Ocular Immunology in the Centre for Experimental Medicine at Queen’s University Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK. The research of his group is centred around three thematic areas:

  1. Pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration

Together with his former teacher and colleague John Forrester, he developed the concept of parainflammation in the eye, a major focus of this talk.
