Living with COPD
Dr Dino Tan’ research into COPD
Dr Dino Tan, a scientist from the Institute’s Stem Cell Therapy Unit is currently looking at what causes these flare-ups and how to restore a protective immune response.
Results from his studies might then assist not only in developing ways of reducing these damaging flare-ups in susceptible COPD patients but, importantly, also prevent further lung damage and improve overall quality of life.
You can help the 1 in 7 people living in Australia with COPD by supporting research projects like Dr Tan’s.
Your donation will assist our scientists, clinicians, and nurses continue their vital work. For example:
$30 pays for sample collection tubes
$50 assists in processing patient samples
$100 pays for 3 hours of respiratory nursing time
