Research Interests

The majority of my research studies regulation of innate immunity in health and disease. I focus on how homeostasis of host defense, in particular macrophages, affects pathogenesis of human disease. In the past decade, I have been investigating how lung collectins and NO modified molecules generate novel signals to regulate lung pathology. A variety of techniques, such as protein chemistry, immunology, cell biology, molecular biology and extensive understanding of NO chemistry and biology, was used in these studies. I have studied several disease models in which the role of NO and NO modified molecules play in pathology. We have examined NO and NO modified molecules in a wide range of pulmonary disease. The current application focuses on macrophage phenotypes and tumor associated macrophages, which builds logically upon my prior work. I have scientific experience in lung disease research and have established lung mechanic measurements in recent years. I have shown that NO modified molecules have a wide range of signaling consequences on macrophages.
