Description of Research Expertise:

My research interests stem from my clinical interest in sepsis and lung injury. Our lab investigates how red blood cells and lung endothelium modulate innate immune responses. Our current research aims to understand the mechanisms of the programmed cell death pathway necroptosis in lung endothelium and the role of danger signals released during necroptosis in the development of lung injury. We have also focused on defining the immunomodulatory properties of RBCs and their role in the development of lung injury. Our lab utilizes murine models, human cell culture models, patient samples and dynamic microfluidic models of RBC-induced endothelial injury in order to understand how perturbations of normal RBC and endothelial function contribute to lung inflammation and injury.
