Mark R. Looney, MD is a Professor of Medicine and Laboratory Medicine and Attending Physician on the Pulmonary Consult Service and the Intensive Care Units at UCSF. He received his undergraduate degree from Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee in 1994 and his medical degree from the University of Tennessee, Memphis in 1998. He then came to UCSF where he completed his residency in Internal Medicine, a fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, and research training in the Cardiovascular Research Institute.
My lab is broadly focused on innate immune biology in the lung. Thematic areas include neutrophil and platelet biology as applied to a variety of pulmonary disease states including acute lung injury (ALI)/acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), primary graft dysfunction after lung transplantation, and cystic fibrosis. A major interest is the application of multiphoton intravital lung microscopy as a discovery tool to aid in the study of lung biology, including novel studies on the role of the pulmonary circulation in platelet biogenesis and the hematopoietic potential of the lung. Our overall goal is to identify new mechanisms responsible for lung inflammation and injury and to develop novel therapies to combat lung disease.
