Professional Summary


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. I received the American Lung Association Career Investigator Award. I was awarded the Distinguished Scientist Award here at UNMC in 2010 and in 2012. I received the Department of Veteran’s Affairs Research Career Scientist Award in 2012.
