Research summary

  • My research area of interest is inflammation, with emphasis on the mechanisms that underlie swelling of tissues, or edema. Our laboratory focuses on two phenomena: First, we aim to understand the molecular signaling pathways and effector molecules in endothelial cells that initiate, sustain, and regulate the increased microvascular permeability that accompanies inflammation. This is important for understanding how excess fluid can accumulate in tissues. Second, we are studying the molecular mechanisms that control the intrinsic pumping of lymphatic vessels, which contributes to removing excess fluids from tissues. Understanding how these processes work is important for developing better strategies for resuscitation of trauma patients, wound healing, and optimizing immune function.
