Thoracic research

We are the largest respiratory and respiratory oncology research group in Western Australia’s private health sector.

Our research extends across respiratory and thoracic oncology, spanning primary lung malignancy, interstitial lung disease, mesothelioma, pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary thromboembolic disease, respiratory complications of connective tissue disorders and respiratory issues in bariatric surgery.
 

The St John of God Subiaco Hospital Thoracic Research Group is the largest respiratory and respiratory oncology research group in Western Australia’s private health sector.

The group was established to advance research and clinical excellence in respiratory medicine and cancer related pathologies.

It is estimated that lung cancer will remain the most common cause of death from cancer in 2019, and the fifth most commonly diagnosed cancer.

 

 

The group has broad interests across the respiratory and thoracic oncology landscape, including primary lung malignancy, mesothelioma, pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary thromboembolic disease, respiratory complications of connective tissue disorders and interstitial lung disease.
