Working within the Acute Lung Injury Center with Dr. Rama Mallampalli, our lab is interested in innate immune signaling during pneumonia, sepsis, acute lung injury (ALI) and the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We study protein-protein interactions and post-translational modifications with particular emphasis on the ubiquitin system. With focus on lung epithelium and resident macrophages, we look to identify critical mediators of inflammatory signaling in ALI with the goal of finding novel therapeutic targets to alleviate lung injury. Currently, our research is focused on the role of the ubiquitin system in interferon signaling and the antiviral response.
