Primary Research: The Pulmonary Hypertension Research Group is a collaboration of clinicians and researchers working together to reveal the pathogenesis of PH, identify the mechanisms of the disease, and develop new therapeutic approaches in order to improve the care of patients with PH. Research projects and clinical studies within the institution include:

The role of microRNA in the pathogenesis of arterial hypertensionThe Role of DNA damage in the etiology of PHThe metabolic basis of arterial hypertensionThe Physiology of exercise among patients with PAHPeripheral angiogenesis defects in PAH
