UCLA Receives $1M Donation for Lung Disease Treatments

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Jan 25, 2016

When vital organs in the body, such as the lungs, begin to fail, an organ transplant can be a solution to the problem. However, receiving a transplant may have its own complications, such as the body rejecting its new organ.

Now, thanks to a generous donation of $1 million dollars from Michael and Linda Keston, researchers from the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine will be able to continue studying lung disease and the organ rejection commonly following a transplant.
