Inflammation in Chronic Disease

Phase 1

In recognition of the key role that inflammation plays in multiple chronic diseases, CIHR launched the Inflammation in Chronic Disease initiative aimed at understanding commonalities and differences between these chronic diseases with respect to the role that inflammation plays in their development, progression and complications. The vision of CIHR's Inflammation in Chronic Disease initiative, which was developed at the 2011 Inflammation in Chronic Disease Consensus Conference, was to establish new interdisciplinary teams that bring together groups of researchers who could undertake innovative research in the field of chronic inflammation. The Inflammation in Chronic Disease initiative also encompasses two other CIHR research initiatives, the Canadian Microbiome Initiative and the Transplantation Research Initiative.

Phase 2

Building on previous investments, CIHR has now launched the Health Challenges in Chronic Inflammation – Phase 2 (HCCI2) initiative.
