The Roberts Laboratory resides within the Cardiovascular Research Center and is lead by Dr. Jesse Roberts Jr., a pulmonary cell and molecular biologist and a Massachusetts General Hospital pediatrician with clinical expertise in neonatology and anesthesia. The Roberts Lab mission involves using cell and molecular biology tools to develop and investigate novels mechanisms of important pediatric pulmonary diseases and to rapidly extend these new findings to patient care through translational and technological innovations. For example, we have investigated the role of nitric oxide (NO), cGMP, and cytokine signaling in the injured newborn and infant lung and developed the use of inhaled NO gas and advanced cytokine modulation technologies to prevent or ameliorate pediatric pulmonary vascular diseases. With the extensive research facilities offered by the Cardiovascular Research Center and Massachusetts General Hospital, devotion of very talented post-doctoral students and laboratory research staff, and generous support by collaborators and important government, industry, and private supporters, the Roberts Laboratory has introduced several important innovations into pediatric pulmonary care.
