The Respiratory Research Group at IDIBGI  includes several researchers from the Pulmonology Service. It is focused on research into bronchiectasis, sleep disorders, occupational respiratory diseases, and interstitial lung diseases.

The research is complemented by intense clinical activity, which has led the group to be invited to conferences in international congresses, to carrying out draft reviews and to publishing in high impact journals, as well as to being experts in the field of respiratory diseases, both nationally and internationally.

Main lines of research
  • Bronchiectasis: Etiology, diagnosis, and treatment
  • Sleep disorders: Diagnosis in primary medicine and vascular repercussions of the disease
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Early diagnosis of lung cancer
  • Occupational respiratory pathologies
  • Diffuse interstitial lung disease
Strategic objectives
  • Bronchiectasis: objectives: to investigate in the field of Bronchiectasis with different aetiologies, including cystic fibrosis, in terms of etiology, diagnosis, bronchial infection, and treatment.
  • Obstructive sleep Apnoea Syndrome (OSA): Objectives: Early diagnosis, endothelial and metabolic dysfunction and identification of plasma and cellular biomarkers.
  • Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH): Objectives: New therapeutic targets, causes of the disease, vascular dysfunctions and in vitro 3D and in vivo models of endothelial pathology within CTEPH.
  • Lung cancer: Objectives: Detection of ctDNA as a diagnostic tool in lung cancer.
  • COVID-19: Objectives:  Advanced respiratory therapies in COVID-19 patients. Pulmonary respiratory and vascular sequelae in patients that have been through COVID-19.
