Trauma, major surgery, sepsis and the broader perioperative period all result in profound disruption of immune function and inflammatory control mechanisms. Using a range of techniques, from laboratory assays (flow cytometry, RNA sequencing) through to applied systems physiology, we examine how surgery can serve as a model to help understand resilience to tissue injury and altered inflammation.
