UVA Lung Injury and Transplant Research Labs

The Lung Injury and Transplant Research Labs in the Department of Surgery are comprised of a diverse team of clinicians and researchers dedicated to helping lung injury and transplant patients through the advancement of basic and translational research as well as the training of Residents, PostDocs, and Students. Our laboratories are headed by four Principle Investigators and utilize both in vivo and in vitro models to study clinically relevant issues including: lung ischemia-reperfusion injury and primary graft dysfunction after transplant, organ preservation, ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP), in vivo lung perfusion (IVLP) as a surgical treatment of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), and noninvasive molecular imaging of lung injury.
