Collaborative Research Thrust Areas

1)
The Interplay between chronic and genetic respiratory disorders, respiratory function, efficacy of inhaled drug delivery and dusceptibility to environmental xenobiotics
2)
The combined in vivo and in silico quantification of lung function and aerosol deposition.
3)
In vivo and in silico drivers of innovative modeling of function and regional deposition in the “non-standard” lung: the effects of age, sex and disease.
4)
Exploring the role of exhaled bio-aerosols as bio-markers.
5)
In vivo, in vitro, and in silico modeling of mucociliary function in chronic respiratory diseases.
6)
Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools for the identification of population clusters and exploration of links between respiratory morphometric archetypes, disease presentation/progression and genetics.
7)
Use of novel exposure assessment technologies to assess and monitor respiratory diseases.
8)
Thorax dynamics and respiratory function during sleep in patients with neuromuscular dysfunction and/or respiratory diseases.
