    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Sundaram is a biomedical engineer, physician, and scientist with an interest in airway smooth muscle biology. Her laboratory focuses on tethering pathways used by muscle to transmit force. Through a more nuanced understanding of pathways that contribute to force transmission and the influence on pro-inflammatory cytokines on regulating these pathways, Dr. Sundaram hopes to identify novel drug targets to mitigate exaggerated airway narrowing in chronic airways diseases. Dr. Sundaram attends in the Moffitt-Long Intensive Care Units where she works with students, residents, and fellows and gives recurring lectures on management of ICU patients.

    Dr. Sundaram also serves as the Associate Program Director for the Molecular Medicine Pathway in Internal Medicine. In this capacity she coordinates weekly didactics for physician-scientists in training and establishes mentoring pathways for the next generation of physician-scientists, with a special emphasis on women and minorities underrepresented in science.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
