Children’s Research Institute/Marsico Lung Institute Joint Seminar: “Neutrophil Elastase and Macrophage Function in CF”
February 21 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
“Neutrophil Elastase and Macrophage Function in CF”
Judith A. Voynow, MD
Dr. Voynow is a pediatric pulmonologist with research interests in cystic fibrosis, bronchopulmonary dysplasia and interactions between hosts and pulmonary susceptibility to environmental factors. Her laboratory has focused on understanding how neutrophil elastase in the CF airway causes lung disease and is investigating potential new therapies to combat this process. Their ongoing work has discovered that neutrophil elastase upregulates airway mucins via reactive oxygen species and via inflammatory mediators both in vitro and in vivo. Read more >>
