Research / AdvancesDr. Edward Eden's research interests include investigation of lung-related illnesses, disorders and treatments. He has served as the principal investigator for various projects, including The Alpha-1 Foundation study targeted on the detection of alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency in patients with COPD, and the COPD Foundation bronchiectasis registry consortium. He was co-investigator for research of HIV infection in alveolar macrophages, and co-investigator for a study of the national registry of patients with alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency-related emphysema.
