Andrew Tager, MD
Andrew Tager, MD

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.

ARDS Network Clinical Coordinating Center
ARDS Network Clinical Coordinating Center

The Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) Network Clinical Coordinating Center coordinates randomized controlled trials for patients with ARDS.

Benjamin Medoff, MD
Benjamin Medoff, MD

The Medoff Laboratory studies the pathogenesis of pulmonary inflammation, specifically the role of T cells in mediating inflammatory lung diseases.

Charles Hales, MD
Charles Hales, MD

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.

Critical Care Translational Medicine Group
Critical Care Translational Medicine Group

The Critical Care Translational Medicine Group designs, oversees and coordinates international trials in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and sepsis.

David Christiani, MD, MPH
David Christiani, MD, MPH

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).

James Moon, PhD
James Moon, PhD

The Moon Laboratory investigates basic issues of CD4+ T cell tolerance by directly tracking endogenous antigen-specific populations in mice and humans.

Medoff Lung Immunology Laboratory

The research in the Medoff Laboratory is dedicated to understanding the molecular basis of immune-mediated lung injury.

Rajagopal Lab
Rajagopal Lab

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.

Scott Harris, MD
Scott Harris, MD

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.

Suter Pulmonary Optical Imaging Laboratory
Suter Pulmonary Optical Imaging Laboratory

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.
