Our lab does basic, translational and clinical research on the role of the alveolar epithelium in the pathogenesis and resolution of acute lung injury and the acute respiratory distress syndrome. Current projects include studies of the role of cell-free hemoglobin in the pathogenesis of lung epithelial injury in acute lung injury, investigation of the role of alveolar epithelium in modulating intra-alveolar fibrin deposition in the injured lung, translational studies of biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis in acute lung injury, and studies of donor management for lung transplantation.
