WE ARE A Group OF RESEARCHERS WHO AIM TO UNCOVER THE MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR MECHANISMS UNDERLYING CHRONIC RESPIRATORY DISEASES SUCH AS ASTHMA, CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE (COPD), LYMPHANGIOLEIOMYOMATOSIS (LAM) AND PULMONARY FIBROSIS.
Our Mission Statement:
We are a group of researchers based in Sydney, Australia who aim to uncover the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) and pulmonary fibrosis.
The RRG today
The groups main laboratories are based at the Woolcock Institute and the University of Technology Sydney, and is formed due to a collaboration between researchers based at the School of Life Sciences, and the Graduate School of Pharmacy, University of Technology Sydney. It has had continuous support from the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia and The Asthma Foundation of New South Wales. The group constitutes the Respiratory Cell & Molecular Biology Division of the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research.
We provide projects for PhD, Masters and Honours students, as well as for Postdoctoral Fellows from both Australia and overseas, in addition to options for the Graduate Medical Program, the Combined Degree Program (MBBS/PhD) and the Master of Pharmacy (Clinical).
