Professor of Immunopharmacology Dean for Research and Research Impact, QMUL
Mauro Perretti is a Professor of Immunopharmacology at the William Harvey Research Institute, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.
Prof Perretti pioneered the field of ‘Resolution of Inflammation’ as an area of biology that defines the endogenous mechanisms/mediators/receptors operative to temper over-shooting inflammation and enable tissue protection or repair. He has a strong interest in translating this biology into innovative therapeutic approaches by assessing the science required to develop agonists at pro-resolving receptors.
Resolution-based therapy has the potential to afford a new approach to tissue repair and regeneration, by activating long-lasting molecular and genomic circuits. Prof Perretti’s vision is to establish resolution pharmacology as a novel branch of the discipline.
Mauro has published over 400 publications, with >33,000 citations and an H Factor of 99 (Google Scholar, Oct 2021).
