Phone: 919-966-2531

Clinical Interests:

  1. Lung Transplant Medicine
  2. General internal medicine & General Pulmonary Medicine
  3. Lung diseases associated with genetic abnormalities – cystic fibrosis, primary ciliary dyskinesia, bronchiectasis.
  4. Infectious diseases of the lung – tuberculosis and non-tuberculous infections

Research Interests:

The correlations between genetic disease and disease expression at a cell biologic and organ level, particularly as pertains to airways disease and other related diseases.

  1. Airway host defence, disorders of ciliary structure/function.
  2. Drug delivery to the lung.
  3. Gene therapy, and other novel therapies for CF.
  4. Genetics of airways diseases.
