Scientific Focus

Systems Medicine of Chronic Lung Disease


In the Schiller lab we aim at characterizing the extracellular niche of the distal airways and lung parenchyma and its function in regulation of tissue homeostasis, regeneration upon injury, and metastatic colonization. Using systems biology tools, such as mass spectrometry driven proteomics and single cell expression analysis, in combination with mouse models of lung disease we wish to identify fundamental molecular principles of tissue/organ regeneration, homeostasis and fibrosis.
