Research Description

My laboratory investigates lung inflamamtion/injury, remodeling, fibrosis, and development of lung cancer. Lung inflammation is important for host defense functions but can contribute to tissue injury when the inflammation is excessive or dysregulated. By studying the NF-kB transcription pathway, we hope to better understand factors that control lung inflammation, injury, and host defense. We are also interested in the basic mechanisms that lead to normal lung repair or fibrosis following injury and mechanisms by which chronic inflammation alters the lung microenvironment in a pro-tumorigenic manner.
