Research topic: Cell Death by Apoptosis
Apoptosis is a controlled and orderly process of cell death.
Apoptosis is a specific process that cells undergo to die, in which the remains of the cell are "cleaned up" and removed by other living cells. If there is build up debris (e.g., the remains are not properly cleared), this can lead to damaging immune reactions.
Apoptosis can be triggered for a variety of reasons, both "naturally" at the end of a cell’s life-span or during development (also known as programmed cell death), or due to stress such as infection with a virus or following chemotherapy.
