Description: The University of Giessen and Marburg Lung
Center is one of the world’s leading pulmonary
Centers. Its recognised for excellence both in the
basic scientific research and in the clinical
management of patients with lung diseases. The
main focus of the research project will be aimed at
molecular pathomechanism driving
development of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a chronic,
progressive lung disease with unknown ethiology.
It affects approximately 5 million persons
