Research: Acute lung injury (ALI) is a common illness in intensive care units with a significant morbidity and mortality. Currently, the treatment of ALI focuses primarily on supportive care and, if known, treatment of the underlying cause. My research focuses on the signaling in the alveolar epithelium involved in the propagation of acute lung injury. In the laboratory, my experiments use human and murine cells in vitro and murine models of ALI in vivo to investigate signaling pathways important in ALI. The eventual goal of my research is to identify potentially novel therapeutic targets for the prevention and treatment of acute lung injury.
