Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Developing animal models of lung transplantation.

Lung transplantation as a cure for terminal lung disease has seen little improvement in outcomes for more than 20 years. The field remains highly challenging, in part, because of an absence of robust animal models which are technically- feasible and reproducible across centers. Further, models have limited relevance to clinical (chronic) airway remodeling, the leading problem in pulmonary allografts. In the absence of ...more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Research Opportunities in HLB to Facilitate Aging in Place

There is a need for greater evidence-based research over the next 5-10 years to reduce healthcare costs, reduce hospitalizations, and support older persons with significant heart, lung, blood, sleep conditions to remain in their private homes if feasible, if technology is utilized that fosters clinical and epidemiologic research.

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Exercise effects on cellular level

What cellular and/or intracellular signaling events are activated in response to acute or chronic physical activity that lead to or explain improvements in health outcomes, prevention, or treatment of lung diseases?

Which metabolic signatures induced by exercise/physical activity would be predictive/ associated with poor lung disease prognosis?

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

What are the most effective strategies for reducing alarm fatigue and optimizing cardiorespiratory monitor alarm management?

Hospital cardiorespiratory monitors have great potential to save lives, but are hampered by high false alarm rates that contribute to alarm fatigue. While the long term solution is developing new medical devices that will do this better, few hospitals will benefit from new device innovations in the next decade. In order to better identify early signs of cardiorespiratory deterioration in the hospital at an early stage ...more »

Goal 1: Promote Human Health

Role of the lymphatic system in heart, lung, blood, sleep health and diseases

What is the role of lymphatic system in normal function of the heart? Do dysfunctional lymphatics contribute to heart failure? Do lymphatics have a role in recovery after MI? It has been reported that lymphatic vasculature transport HDL during reverse cholesterol transfer. Do lymphatics have a role in atherosclerosis? What is the contribution of lymphatic system to asthma or COPD? Does the lymphatic system contribute ...more »
