EBPI Researchers funded to study chronic lung allograft failure

In a collaborative project with the University Hospital Zurich (PD Dr. Christian Benden), EBPI collaborators Dr. Thomas Radtke and Prof. Holger Dressel were recently awarded funding from the Swiss Lung League. Their 4-year prospective study aims to study the role of the lung clearance index, a non-invasive measure of ventilation inhomogeneity, for the early detection and monitoring of chronic lung allograft failure after adult lung transplantation. The overall goal of this study is to detect early lung allograft failure enabling the timely initiation of therapy and thereby improving overall outcomes after lung transplantation.

Congratulations, Thomas & Holger!
