Dr. Gisli Jenkins

Professor of Thoracic Medicine

National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London

Dr Jenkins’ research focuses on the mechanism by which injury leads to scarring in the lung. Lung scarring is the central process leading to disability and death in people with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, and also occurs in diseases such as chronic asthma where it promotes airway remodelling and impaired lung function. Following injury to the lung various cells activate TGFb via integrins in a spatially restricted manner. The activated TGFb then leads to cellular changes that promote the development of scarring. Much of the work is focused on two integrins in two cell types within the lung.
