Research Interests

Although my principal activities at present are administrative, my research interests are focused on inflammatory mechanisms of COPD.  In collaboration with Dr. Hamid’s group, we are exploring the roles of innate immunity in COPD pathogenesis.  We are particularly interested in novel mechanisms of innate and acquired immunity and in this regard are studying the role of IL-17 and related cytokines in COPD.  We use a combination of human material, in-vivo animal models and in-vitro studies. In summary, our goal is to determine the degree to which these mechanisms contribute to the inflammatory changes in COPD airways.
