Welcome to the Inflammation Research Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to engaging and encouraging scientists, researchers, students, teachers and clinicians with an interest in inflammation biology. Our mission is to foster and facilitate a more informed, connected and collaborative community whose goal is to serve and promote scientific and technological advances towards developing new therapeutic strategies for complex and diverse inflammation-related diseases.  We are fundamentally a translational group with a mix of industry, academic, government, and non-profit scientists dedicated to cutting edge inflammation research.  We offer scientific meetings with top speakers in the field, networking opportunities, and we foster communication and discussion of scientific and technological advances that can be used to develop new therapeutic agents for the wide diversity of serious diseases with inflammatory processes.
