Research Interests
The research in my laboratory is directed toward the understanding of airway epithelial cell function under physiologic and disease conditions. We are interested in the mechanistic signal transduction pathways that define ciliary beating, pro-inflammatory cytokine production, remodeling and wound repair, and cell adhesion under conditions of cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption. Our studies aim to define the role of serine-threonine protein kinases and the second messengers that regulate these enzymes in lung epithelial function.
