Yale Center for Pulmonary Infection Research and Treatment (CPIRT)

This multidisciplinary Center will be an academic hub and international leader in advancing innovative and cutting-edge basic, translational and clinical research that will further the field's understanding of pulmonary infections and lead to more effective diagnoses and treatments.
  • This multidisciplinary Center will be an academic hub and international leader in advancing innovative and cutting-edge basic, translational and clinical research that will further the field’s understanding of pulmonary infections and lead to more effective diagnoses and treatments.
  • The Center will initially focus its efforts in both explorative and targeted research relevant to pulmonary infection and immunity in 3 specific areas:

    (1) To explore the basic science of key host-microbe molecular and cellular interactions in the lung;

    (2) To investigate and define the mechanisms of infections which either cause or exacerbate acute / chronic lung diseases using both basic and translational approaches;

    (3) To utilize and develop novel technologies that will make it possible to better diagnose and treat pernicious lung infections.
