The Tager Laboratory investigates (1) pulmonary and dermal fibrosis, focusing on the roles lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P), and (2) HIV immunopathogenesis, using a novel mouse model of HIV infection.
The Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) Network Clinical Coordinating Center coordinates randomized controlled trials for patients with ARDS.
The Medoff Laboratory studies the pathogenesis of pulmonary inflammation, specifically the role of T cells in mediating inflammatory lung diseases.
Major interest in pulmonary hypertension and its treatment with heparin derivatives we have produced which are weakly anticoagulant but strongly antiproliferative for smooth muscle cells, pulmonary emboli detection and smoke inhaltion from fires.
The Critical Care Translational Medicine Group designs, oversees and coordinates international trials in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and sepsis.
Molecular Epidemiology of ARDS: Under the direction of David Christiani, MD, MPH, our laboratory examines genetic and environmental factors that may impact the development and progression of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
The Moon Laboratory investigates basic issues of CD4+ T cell tolerance by directly tracking endogenous antigen-specific populations in mice and humans.
The research in the Medoff Laboratory is dedicated to understanding the molecular basis of immune-mediated lung injury.
Our laboratory focuses on organ regeneration and the application of developmental biology to human disease. We focus on the lung as a model system since there is an abundance of respiratory diseases of unknown cause without cures.
The Harris Lab is a multi-disciplinary, inter-departmental group of investigators aiming to advance the understanding of whole-organ physiology and pathophysiology of the human lung through the development and implementation of advanced imaging techniques, sophisticated mathematical and computer modeling and bioengineering. In our studies, we apply rigorous quantitative tools to investigate the complex structure-function relationships of healthy and diseased lungs.
The focus of the Pulmonary Optical Imaging Laboratory is the development and subsequent translation of novel optical diagnostic tools for evaluating the pulmonary airways and lung.
