Talking Science: Lung Fibrosis

Presentation by Associate Professor Cecilia Prêle

Cecilia Prêle is an Associate Professor and head of the Tissue Repair and Fibrosis Group at the Institute for Respiratory Health. She is an experienced cell and molecular biologist.

Associate Professor Prêle’s research focus is on understanding the cellular and molecular pathways driving the pathogenesis of lung fibrosis. Specifically, her current research investigates the role of B cells and autoimmunity in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and the potential use of immunotherapy approaches for the future treatment of chronic lung disease. Her research has expanded to include the investigation of other fibrotic conditions.
