Dr Jenna Cash – Group Leader
I feel fortunate to have started my research group in the Centre for Inflammation Research (CIR) at Edinburgh University. Together the CIR and the Centre for Regenerative Medicine, form the Institute for Regeneration and Repair. Collectively our research covers many organs, cell types and diseases, which offers myriad opportunities for exciting collaborations!
