Cell and molecular mechanisms of inflammatory responses induced by inhalation of ambient air pollutants

Our laboratory is interested in the cellular and molecular mechanisms that control inflammatory responses induced by inhalation of ambient air pollutants. Projects focus on early events that result in the disregulation of signaling processes that regulate mediator expression. Approaches include real-time molecular imaging of human lung cells exposed in vitro and ex-vivo.
