    Collapse Overview
    My lab studies how cellular stress responses in the lung epithelium regulate lung epithelial plasticity and differentiation across lung diseases from asthma to pulmomary fibrosis. We have a special interest in endoplasmic reticulum stress (ER stress) and the unfolded protein response. We use a combination of mouse genetics, advanced tissue culture approaches, and novel chemical biology tools.

    Our active projects include:
    1. Cell and molecular biology of Regulated IRE1α-Mediated Decay (RIDD) in epithelial fate transitions
    2. Fate and function of epithelial transitional states in pulmonary fibrosis
    3. Regulation of goblet cell metaplasia in asthma and other muco-obstructive diseases

    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.
