Research

The overall goal of the Mora laboratory is to understand the pathogenesis of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. We use animal models of lung fibrosis including bleomycin and the gammaherpesvirus infection and in vitro analyses of type II alveolar epithelial cells and alveolar macrophages to unveil molecular mechanisms involved in the host response to injury and repair.
