New avenues for Epac in inflammation and tissue remodeling in COPD

31 October 2014

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the lung mainly caused by cigarette smoke. The main characteristic of COPD is a progressive loss of lung function due to inflammation and tissue remodeling, including airway fibrosis and emphysema. Little is known about the molecular mechanisms that cause the development and progression of COPD. The thesis of Anouk Oldenburger aims to acquire more knowledge about these processes, to be able to make steps forward to improve current therapy for COPD.

Anouk Oldenburger did her PhD at the University of Groningen at the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy (GRIP). The research was funded by the Long Fund. She will continue her scientific career as a postdoc at the University of Groningen.
