The Genetics Unit of the Lung Institute of Western Australian (LIWA)

 

Description

The Genetics Unit of the Lung Institute of Western Australia (LIWA), moved into the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR) laboratories in 2002, and was formally known as the Genetics Unit of the Asthma and Allergy Research Institute (AARI). It was established primarily to study associations between asthma and mutations in asthma candidate genes. WAIMR's primary interest is the genetics of asthma and allergy, but also includes other respiratory diseases such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis. The Unit aims to identify changes in the DNA of candidate genes and identify whether they contribute towards the clinical features, onset and severity of these diseases.
