I have an extensive research training in signaling molecular pathways related to cancer, fibrosis and cardiomyopathies. My research focuses on functional and spatial genomics, as well as molecular phenotyping of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and Sarcoidosis. I am also involved with development of anti-fibrotic drugs.
