Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Does the genetic cause of pulmonary fibrosis have implications for treatment response?

Is pulmonary fibrosis due to genetic/heritable causes different than 'sporadic' 'idiopathic' pulmonary fibrosis? With findings in genetics and the emphasis on precision medicine the issue of pulmonary fibrosis being idiopathic will diminish with time. Treatment for this fatal disease should be accessible to those who have pulmonary fibrosis with no other alternatives.
