Kalin Lab

Kalin Research Lab

The primary focus of Dr. Kalin’s research is to understand the molecular signaling pathways and transcriptional regulation that control development of pulmonary fibrosis, chronic lung inflammation and lung carcinogenesis. Kalin’s laboratory is specifically interested in identifying critical regulatory interactions responsible for the cross-talk between alveolar type II epithelial cells and stromal cells during lung fibrosis and lung carcinogenesis with the long term goal to develop new therapies to treat chronic lung diseases.
