Welcome to the laboratories of the Lung Transplant Research Program in the Department of Surgery, University of Virginia. We are a diverse team of clinicians and researchers dedicated to helping lung transplant recipients through the advancement of lung transplant research and the research training of surgery Residents, PostDocs, and Students. Our research labs are headed by four Principle Investigators who utilize in vivo and in vitro models to study clinically relevant issues in lung transplantation with a focus on ischemia-reperfusion injury, primary graft dysfunction, lung preservation, ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) and rejection.
