Lung Transplants. Thoracic Neoplasms

Scientific Activity

Our research activity is focused on the effect of different molecules on lung preservation for transplantation. Additionally, we study the mechanism of chronic lung rejection and its effect on the regulation of different molecules. In our studies on lung preservation and chronic lung rejection we investigate the biological effects of different molecules especially serine-protease inhibitors on oxidative stress, inflammation, the endothelial function and cell signaling mechanisms.
