Joanna Floros

Joanna Floros (cellular and molecular physiology).

Floros is a founder and an important contributor to the surfactant protein field. Pulmonary surfactant is a lipoprotein complex that prevents lung collapse and is essential for life. Surfactant deficiency can lead to respiratory distress syndrome in prematurely born infants. Floros was the first to identify, characterize and clone the precursor molecules to human surfactant protein A. Her recent research also focuses on the impact of environmental pollution on pulmonary disease susceptibility.
