Dr. Won-Kyung Cho awarded 5 month pilot project

Dr. Won-Kyung Cho was awarded a 5 month pilot project with the CPVB COBRE at the Ocean State Research Institute. Cho is currently an Assistant Professor Medicine – Pulmonary at Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and an attending at the Providence VA Medical Center. Her pilot project is entitled Interleukin-13-mediated mechanisms of pulmonary vascular remodeling. Cho’s proposal provides an innovative concept of the possible interplay between inflammatory and metabolic processes, which would shed greater insights into the pathogenesis of PAH. The ultimate goal is to apply for independent funding for further development of this project including a possible clinical trial.
