Research Description

Dr. Peters studies pulmonary disease related to pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and COVID-19 infections attempting to understand the pathologic process and establish better treatment strategies. For PAH, he works to understand current pharmacologic therapies that may be better applied to patient therapy. For COVID-19, he seeks to understand the pathologic process so we can pursue better therapeutic strategies for severely sick patients.
