  • Research summary

    The principle research question is how genetic, immune and environmental factors interact to influence the development of lung fibrosis in (A) connective tissue diseases (CTD), (B) Granulomatous Conditions (GC), and (C) Idiopathic Interstitial Pneumonias (IIP). What are the critical genetic, biological and environmental components that can be used for the early identification of predisposition to lung fibrosis? The identification of these factors will also enhance our understanding of disease processes and may in future lead to the development of new therapies.
