Research project

Defining the role of ZEB1-dependent epithelial-mesenchymal crosstalk in lung fibrosis

Project overview

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a life-threatening condition of the lungs where tissue becomes thickened, stiff, and scarred, limiting the amount of oxygen getting into the blood. The aim of this project is to provide effective targeted therapies for sufferers to reduce symptoms of this devastating disease and improve their quality of life as well as to identify biomarkers for IPF patients.
