Lung Disease Research

UPMC Content 3

The lungs allow us to breathe, transporting oxygen from the air into the bloodstream and releasing carbon dioxide.

Smoking, allergies, asthma, and infections like pneumonia or tuberculosis can affect this exchange of gases and cause breathing problems. Cancerous and noncancerous tumors can also affect the lungs.

Our researchers in pulmonary pathology study how lungs can become damaged and how cancer forms. We also investigate other causes of lung disease and dysfunction.
