Our physicians and researchers have made major advances in lung transplant and transplant of other organs. As a result, our patients know they will receive the latest and best care.
Our team has a wide range of knowledge in science that improves lung transplant, heart transplant and heart/lung transplant. We constantly seek to improve our ability to bring life-extending therapy to patients with severe lung disease.
We are always engaged in groundbreaking clinical trials and research at UCLA. Our recent innovations include:
At UCLA, innovation never stops. We're collaborating with other centers to study lung transplant, as well as other research. This work includes:
Multiple clinical studies to improve patients' immunosuppressive regimen post-heart or lung transplant and to minimize side effects
Running a lab dedicated to inflammatory mediators in lung transplant, to refine our understanding of graft rejection
Hosting our own well-known immunogenetics lab
Managing a broad array of other research
UCLA pulmonologists are aware of all current research studies and will offer patients and their families opportunities for any medically appropriate opportunities to participate in research.
