Yang Zhou, PhD Awarded 5 month Pilot Project

Yang Zhou, PhD, was awarded a 5 month pilot project with the CardioPulmonary Vascular Biology COBRE at the Ocean State Research Institute. Zhou is currently an Assistant Professor (Research) in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at Alpert Medical School of Brown University. His pilot project is entitled “ChI3L1and Pulmonary Hypertension Associated with Interstitial Lung Disease.” The experiments designed in this proposal will combine extensive experience in animal models of ILD and the expertise from investigators at CardioPulmonary Vascular Biology Center to obtain novel and important insights into the pathways leading to vascular remodeling responses in fibrotic lung diseases.
