Brief description Fibrosis causes disability and death with millions of people affected each year. Current treatments are limited and there is a need to better understand the changes that drive fibrosis. In this study we will investigate how cells communicate to initiate and drive fibrosis. Using readily available drugs we will test new ways to alter cell communication to stop the disease and thus, develop a common and effective therapy that will change the future for people living with fibrosis.
