Conceptual Schematic

THE THREE MOST SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS THAT DEFINE YOUR RESEARCH PROGRAM:
What are the mechanisms involved in the age-related susceptibility to disrepair and fibrosis in the lung?

How PINK1 deficiency promotes injury, and fibrosis?

How mitochondrial DAMPS promote lung and heart disease ?

FIVE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR AREAS OF INTEREST:
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, Pulmonary Hypertension, Aging, Mitochondria homeostasis, ER stress

TECHNIQUES, MODELS, METHODS, ANALYTIC APPROACHES, ETC:

Murine models of lung injury and fibrosis
Murine models of pulmonary hypertension
Readouts of mitochondrial function, morphology and release of mitochondrial DAMPS
Isolation of primary lung cells
3-D human lung tissue model
