Research Labs

  • The Baldwin Lab aims to improve critical illness survivorship.

  • The Bhattacharya Lab (Lung Biology Lab) specializes in state-of-the-art, single and two-photon laser scanning microscopy of the intact lung.

  • The Cardoso Lab focuses on the mechanisms that regulate lung development, regeneration-repair, and the understanding of how disruption of developmental events influence adult pulmonary diseases.

  • The lab's mission is to provide critically ill patients access to promising candidate therapies in clinical trials and advance clinical interventions that improve survival and decrease morbidity.

  • The Garcia Lab investigates the genetic basis of adult lung disease, striving to leverage genetics to understand the molecular mechanism of disease and integrate discoveries into clinical practice.

  • The Jelic Lab conducts research on molecular mechanisms that mediate vascular endothelial activation and increased cardiovascular risk in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.

  • The Mori Lab's focus is on uthe fundamental cellular and molecular mechanisms behind intra- or interspecies respiratory biology, and seeking an innovative treatment for maintaining respiratory health.

  • The O'Donnell Lab's research interests are in tuberculosis (TB), HIV, respiratory epidemiology, and global health including ethical issues in global health research.

  • The Snoeck Lab's focus is stem cell biology, consisting of two major vignettes: hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and a recently developed project on lung development from human pluripotent stem cells.

  • The Wang Lab's research focuses on dissecting the mechanisms of stemness control in pluripotent/totipotent and cancer cells.
