Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to investigate new therapies for advanced lung disease.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Lung Diseases, Interstitial Other: novel biomarkers of lung disease

Detailed Description:
This research study is being conducted to learn about the progression and cause of lung disease. By agreeing to be a part of this study, you will allow the lung tissue which would normally have been discarded after your procedure, to be used for research purposes to allow us to understand more about your condition which may potentially lead to novel treatments and therapeutics. For this study, the investigators will isolate specific cells from the lung tissue and measure cellular, molecular and genetic mechanisms responsible for regulating lung disease. No other type of research will be performed on these samples nor will the samples be given to other investigators for unrelated research.

Intervention Details:
  • Other: novel biomarkers of lung disease
    we will be identifying molecular, genetic, and cellular markers of lung disease

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The development of novel therapeutics for interstial lung disease [ Time Frame: 10 years ]
    Our research on these human lung cells will provide critical data which will aid in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of different lung diseases, which have no cure.
