My laboratory is interested in understanding the pathogenesis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), a chronic respiratory disorder associated with preterm birth. Using mouse models, ex vivo and in vitro assays our laboratory is studying how inflammation in the preterm lung alters development, leading to BPD.
