Edit Profile

Research & Publications

Research Summary
Dr. Wiener-Kronish has devoted much of her academic career to investigating the mechanism of acute lung injury produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa,a gram negative bacterium that can infect patients in the intensive care unit. Her past research focused on the mechanism of pleural fluid formation during acute lung injury, how toxins produced by Pseudomonascause acute lung injury, andthe production of humanized antibodies that will block these products. Mostrecently, she has investigated the epidemiology of bacterial communities inasthmatics, critically ill patients and in young, newly colonized patients withcystic fibrosis. The goal of her research is to establish whether there arebeneficial communities of bacteria that protect patients against asthma andinfections. Dr. Wiener-Kronish is working with oral biologists and environmental scientists to utilize molecular identification of bacteria for these investigations.
