Research Summary

I am a practicing pulmonologist and intensivist and I maintain a basic science laboratory investigating acute lung injury. The long-term goal of my laboratory is to use experimental modeling to discover mechanisms responsible for the development of acute lung injury and to test novel therapeutics in clinically relevant experimental models.
