Welcome to the Patty Lee Lab


My laboratory investigates mechanisms of lung injury and cytoprotection during oxidant stress. Specifically, we have focused on the lung endothelium as a central mediator of lung injury and repair responses. We identified the importance of the stress-response protein heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) and its gaseous reaction product, carbon monoxide (CO), in resisting oxidant-induced endothelial cell death via mitochondrial pathways.
