A National Institutes of Health-designated Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE), the Lung Biology Center makes groundbreaking contributions to the understanding and treatment of cystic fibrosis and other chronic lung diseases. Coupled with Dartmouth’s academic cluster in precision medicine and cystic fibrosis, the Center fosters close collaboration between researchers and physicians.
Goal: $10 million
Could there be a connection between chronic inflammatory lung diseases, such as pulmonary fibrosis, and chronic autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis? That’s one of the important questions that Dr. Richard Enelow, a professor of medicine and of microbiology and immunology at the Geisel School of Medicine and a pulmonologist at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, is exploring in his research laboratory.
