    Research Summary

    Dr. McGrath-Morrow's research interests include neonatal lung injury, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, ataxia telangiectasia, and predisposing factors to adult lung disease.

    She runs a translational laboratory that models neonatal lung injury. The focus of the lab includes:

    • Alveoli and vascular responses of the neonatal lung to hyperoxia, VEGF signaling disruption and secondhand smoke
    • Relationship between neonatal lung injury and abnormal lung function in the adult
    • Immune response of the neonatal lung to acute lung injury to identify pathways to optimize lung recovery
