Clinical Interests for Referring Providers

My interests include lung pathology, specifically non-neoplastic lung pathology, and the vasculitides.

Research Interest for Referring Providers

My research primarily involves translational research and tissue banking in non-neoplastic lung diseases. My lab is involved in many aspects of pulmonary research. We are currently the tissue repository (core lab) for the lung tissue research consortium (LTRC). The LTRC is an NIH-sponsored tissue bank that collects lung samples from patients undergoing various lung surgeries for emphysema and interstitial lung diseases. As human lung tissue is increasingly used to characterize cellular and molecular abnormalities of the lung, adequately preserved and characterized tissue is essential to tissue analysis. The current emphasis on genomic and proteonomic characterization of actual human lung diseases (not animal diseases), has increased the urgency of tissue collection to keep pace with research demands.
