Research focus: pulmonary fibrosis, genetics, rare lung diseases
Dr. Jonathan A. Kropski received his undergraduate degree from Davidson College in 2004 and his medical degree from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in 2008. He completed his residency training in Internal Medicine and Pulmonary/Critical Care fellowship at Vanderbilt University. His research interests include the genetic basis of interstitial lung disease, rare/familial lung diseases, and molecular mechanisms of lung injury, repair and fibrosis. His laboratory utilizes bioinformatic approaches as well as cell and transgenic animal models to investigate the molecular mechanisms through which genetic variants affect lung epithelial injury and repair mechanisms.
