What we do

The Developmental Biology Laboratory is part of the Department of Pediatric Pulmonology and Neonatology.


Our scientific goal is to identify the regulation of fetal lung development. This is necessary in order to understand the pathologic aspects of these processes that disturb the maturational process (e.g. infection/inflammation) and to design preventive strategies.


Our longterm goal is to help prevent lung and brain disease in the developing newborn, and to contribute to the protection of child health.
