Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Systems Approaches to "Phenosimilar" Diseases

There are diverse diseases that share similar features. For example, many chronic airways diseases (chronic aspiration, ciliary dyskinesia, some COPD) "phenocopy" cystic fibrosis in terms of infectious agents, mucus clearance problems, progressive loss of lung function, etc. Use multiplatform "omics" approaches and Big Data bioinformatics to identify common nodes for therapeutic targeting. Other examples: emphysema and bronchopulmonary dysplasia; IPF and scleroderma-ILD.
