Areas of Interest

My research program has been focused on the mechanisms regulating mesenchymal cell survival and apoptosis in wound repair and fibrosis. Specifically, we have shown that soluble pro-fibrotic mediators promote myofibroblast resistance to a variety of apoptotic stimuli, and are working to better understand the signaling mechanisms involved. Included in this focus is the investigation of the mechanisms by which matrix interactions and the biomechanical microenvironment regulate mesenchymal cell susceptibility to apoptotic stimuli.

Clinically, I am a general pulmonologist with an interest in interstitial lung diseases, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Additional interests include the evaluation of lung nodules, including the diagnosis and staging evaluation of potential lung cancers, and the treatment of obstructive lung diseases such as asthma and COPD.
