Research Interests

The primary focus of this laboratory is the study of molecular mechanisms of lung inflammation. We are interested in defining the relative contribution made by neutrophils (PMN) to the pathological process of acute lung injury. Our goals are to identify the predominant signals produced by lung cells which recruit PMN from the blood stream (known as chemoattractants or chemokines), to define the dominant cell surface receptor(s) responsible for PMN migration, and to investigate strategies to block PMN migration in pre-clinical disease models of acute lung injury.
