The Lung Biology Center (LBC) studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying common lung diseases, including asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, acute lung injury, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer. By creating an environment of collaboration among scientists from multiple disciplines, the LBC is training the next generation of leaders in pulmonary biology and disease.

Current treatments of most common lung diseases are ineffective or toxic, in part due to limited understanding of the molecular events underlying these diseases. LBC scientists employ a wide range of approaches including basic cell and molecular biology, disease models and patient-based research to develop new insights into the biology of lung disease and new approaches for treatment.
