My laboratory is investigating lung development and lung cancer.
We are studying how lung development is controlled. This is a precise process that is essential for breathing. Defects in this process can result in respiratory failure at birth. The goal of our research is to understand how lung developmental disorders occur.
Our research is also revealing how lung cancer forms. We are developing new laboratory models of lung cancer that allow us to assess new treatments. We hope in the long term to improve the outcomes for people with lung cancer.
