The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Lung Vascular Research in Graz, Austria, focusses on delineating molecular pathways leading to lung vascular diseases associated with chronic lung disorders by combining a broad range of molecular biological methods on diseased human samples and preclinical animal models (https://lvr.lbg.ac.at).
Each year, the ERS awards a number of prestigious awards to recognise the achievements of a selected group of leaders in the field of respiratory medicine.
This year, Gabor Kovacs was awarded the “ERS Grand Prize for Novel Research in Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension”.

From September 17th to 18th, 2020, the annual retreat of the LBI LVR took place at the Hotel Loisium in Ehrenhausen, Styria, in compliance with the COVID 19 regulations prescribed by the authorities. Our young colleagues presented their current projects and results. Afterwards, stimulating discussions on the presented topics took place among the participants.
Joint Transnational project in cardiovascular research driven by Early Career Scientists in the frame of MedUniGraz and LBI LVR.
PhD student Neha Sharma received the 2nd Poster Prize of the Austrian Society of Pneumology. She was awarded for her study on the RGS5 molecule, which plays an important role in acute lung failure.
We are very happy about her success!
