The Molecular and Clinical Medicine theme focuses on the pathogenesis and the treatment of cardiovascular disease and respiratory medicine.

Research topics

Respiratory Medicine and Lung Biology

Researchers in this topic study the epidemiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung inflammation, respiratory infections, rare inherited rare diseases (such as Cystic Fibrosis, Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome) and fetal origins of cardio-pulmonary disease.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials of different sizes are undertaken to assess the effectiveness of new biomarkers and new therapies in Cardiovascular Medicine and Respiratory Medicine. They range in size from “proof of concept” small studies to large multicentre trials.
