Jane & Leonard Korman Respiratory Institute



The Jane and Leonard Korman Respiratory Institute is home to a collaborative, translational research model that pairs basic scientists with clinical teams to ask the right questions and accelerate discoveries from the bench to the bedside. Our world-class researchers are pursuing bold new avenues of study, including genetic determinants of airways disease, pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension, lung inflammation, tobacco-related disorders, and lung development. Armed with cutting-edge techniques, diagnostics, and disease models, we are exploring the molecular mechanisms that underpin pulmonary disorders to identify new pathways for intervention.
