It is a website dedicated to promoting the study of molecular and physiological processes that take part in the development of organ fibrosis and its associated complications.

The Fibrosis Institute (TFI)

Aims to foster a community of researchers, healthcare workers, patients, and caregivers who wish to increase their knowledge of organ fibrosis, promote awareness of this condition, and take part in research collaborations that could lead to potential preventative and therapeutic
advances.

Our Mission

The Fibrosis institute offers an online environment with up-to-date evidence-
based information regarding the pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnostic, and therapeutic advances of tissue fibrosis. It is aimed to increase awareness and understanding of this condition among patients, caregivers, health care workers, and investigators around the world.

What is Fibrosis?

It is a common response to chronic inflammation, tissue injury, or certain diseases. Fibrosis can occur in various organs, including the liver, lungs, kidneys, heart, and skin.
