D'Cunha Lab

Dr. D’Cunha’s lab is located in state of art facility of Vascular Medicine Institute, one of the leading institutions of the University of Pittsburgh. His lab focuses on two major Projects- (1) Molecular investigations into the prediction and treatment of ischemia reperfusion injury (I/R injury) of Lung and (1) Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP): Use of molecular approaches to measure novel biomarkers that will seek to be predictive of the quality and function of the lungs that have gone through ischemia and reperfusion. Although I/R injury is the focus of his research, the lab also have interest in cancer biology and is working on novel therapeutics for non-small cell lung cancer.
