Carl Franzblau has been a faculty member of Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine for more than 50 years. His research involved the study of extracellular matrix proteins, collagen and elastin and the role they play in the pathogenesis pf disease. He has been the Principal Investigator of several large program projects involving the response of the lung to injury. He studied animal and cell culture models as well as conducting studies in the clinic. As the PI, it was his responsibility to oversee all aspects of these projects.
