Dr. Bruggeman is particularly interested in the adaptive and maladaptive aspects of the inflammatory and immune responses and has acquired an extensive background on the normal cellular and chemical mechanism involved in these responses. She applies this information to understand how chronic inflammation underlines the development of atherosclerosis. She is also interested in how the mediators of chronic inflammation in one system can affect the function of multiple systems with positive feedback for the development of multisystem failure.
