The Chapman lab is focused on basic and biomedical aspects of lung injury and lung tissue remodeling. The lab employs a number of cell and mouse model systems to study underlying mechanisms of this category of disease. In addition, the lab is using blood and tissue samples from patients to test similarities with recent findings in mouse models of disease and to discover biomarkers of disease progression for several important lung diseases: lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, and interstitial pneumonias. Current projects in the lab and more detail about the scientific approaches of these efforts can be found on the Chapman Lab website.
