G-CSF: A PATHOGENIC EFFECTOR IN CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE AND ITS COMORBIDITIES
Grant number: 1141208 | Funding period: 2018 - 2021
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an incurable lung disease that is a huge global health burden, and new therapies are urgently needed. We have recently discovered a possible cause of COPD. This single factor also appears to drive other associated medical problems that are the biggest contributors to patient deterioration. Using advanced genetics, biochemistry and molecular methods we are searching for ways to turn our discovery into effective treatments for this fatal disease.
