Research in the Stripp Laboratory focuses on understanding the mechanisms of normal tissue maintenance and defects associated with acute and chronic lung disease. The Stripp Lab integrates basic mechanistic studies in the research laboratory with studies that use patient-derived clinical samples to define novel therapeutic targets with potential to promote lung regeneration and ameliorate or reverse lung disease. Areas of disease focus include acute lung injury resulting from viral infection and chronic lung diseases including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, chronic obstructive lung disease and lung cancer.
