Research

Research in the Pulmonary Center is elucidating the biology of healthy lungs, discovering mechanisms responsible for pulmonary disease, analyzing the efficacy and limitations of current pulmonary and critical care practices, and translating these findings to yield clinical advances. The Pulmonary Center encompasses >20,000 square feet of research space, with state of the art equipment and facilities for molecular, cellular, physiological, epidemiological, and outcomes investigations.  Most of these labs are located on 3 adjacent floors of the Housman Research Building of BUSM.  Resources shared amongst the highly collaborative group of Pulmonary Center investigators include open lab areas, specialized use facilities, equipment for analyzing molecules and cells and organisms, and dedicated scientific and administrative support staff.  Our Faculty page lists individual investigators with links to their own faculty pages, and our Links page provides connections to additional web sites dedicated to some of these research programs. The Center pursues diverse lines of research.  While incomplete and always changing, one way to envision our research could be as a break-down into 3 areas of special emphasis (highlighted in the linked pages):

pulmonary immunity and infection

lung development and regenerative medicine

high-throughput patient/population-oriented lung disease research
