Professor Yuben Moodley

Deputy Director

Professor Yuben Moodley is the Co-Deputy Director and Research Leader of the Cell Biology Group at the Institute for Respiratory Health. He is a Consultant Respiratory Physician at Fiona Stanley Hospital and Professor of Respiratory Medicine at The University of Western Australia.

His research interests are finding biomarkers in exhaled air in the diagnosis and monitoring of lung conditions such as Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) as well as investigating mechanisms of repair and fibrosis and finding novel cellular therapies for these lung diseases.

His achievements include investigating the role of exhaled nitric oxide in interstitial lung diseases and delineating novel signal transduction pathways in patients with IPF. More recently, the focus on the role of placentally-derived cells for lung therapy has yielded interesting results.
