Pneumology

Research

The Lung Research Lab is composed of four closely interacting research groups focusing on different aspects of the immunobiology and pathogenesis of the lung. We are currently running collaborations with several groups of the department of clinical research and the Inselspital but also with other national and international partners.

The core of our research activities is focused on the investigation of the mechanisms and new therapeutic approaches of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, the pulmonary immune system including its interaction with biomedical nanocarriers, and the pathogenesis of respiratory viruses in children.
