Research group(s)

Research interests

The research focus is on thoracic diseases.

The research is patient oriented.

  • Thymic diseases: Thymic epithelial tumors, Myasthenia gravis
  • Pulmonary hypertension: CTEPH and iPAH
  • Lung transplantation

The characterization of molecular targets involved in pathophysiological pathways in patients with thymic diseases or patients undergoing lung transplantation or pulmonary endarterectomy surgery is the focus of our laboratory.
