Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is currently the third leading cause of death worldwide with limited symptomatic therapeutic options available and no causative treatment able to reverse the progression of COPD, revealing a high unmet medical need for novel therapeutics.
The Yildirim Laboratory is interested in the immunopathology of COPD and has recently identified a role for tertiary lymphoid organ development, induced bronchus associated lymphoid tissue (iBALT) in the lung, as crucial to disease pathogenesis and by impairing iBALT development, both genetically and by pharmacological inhibition we can impair COPD development and induce tissue regeneration. The aim of this position is to leverage this knowledge for novel antisense-oligonucleotide application in our animal models of COPD, as new therapeutic targets. This will incorporate cutting-edge methods, including pre-clinical animal models of disease, multi-omics, single cell as well as traditional molecular and cell biological approaches.
