Figure 1. The approach taken to create the comprehensive genetic and molecular library for chronic lung disease. The library would include genome-wide SNP analysis, deep sequencing of high priority lung QTLs, comprehensive DNA methylation profiling, whole transcriptome sequencing (RNA-seq), mRNA and microRNA arrays, and focused validation expression platforms.
Lung Genomics Research Consortium
This multi-center Consortium uses advanced genetic and molecular tools to characterize and better understand COPD and pulmonary fibrosis.
Familial Pulmonary Fibrosis Research
National Jewish Health has teamed with Duke University and Vanderbilt University to investigate inherited genetic factors that play a role in the development of familial pulmonary fibrosis.
NTM Center for Excellence
The Nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM) Center of Excellence is comprised of National Jewish Health physicians and researchers dedicated to enhancing the clinical care for all patients with NTM infections, and expanding the body of knowledge on NTM through translational research.
