  • Michelle Eakin Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Michelle Eakin, Ph.D., M.A.
    Medicine

    The Michelle Eakin Lab conducts research on behavioral science and adherence and asthma outcome...s in inner-city children. Our studies into behavioral science have included exploring the impact of medication adherence on lung health outcomes in patients with cystic fibrosis, disparities in anti-hypertensive medication adherence in adolescents and other key topics. We also investigate methods for improving asthma care and treatment as well as health disparities among various ethnicities, particularly in pediatric patients. view more

    Research Areas: cystic fibrosis, asthma, behavioral medicine, health disparities
  • Nadia Hansel Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Nadia Hansel, M.D., M.P.H.
    Medicine

    Research in the Nadia Hansel Lab investigates the clinical, pathophysiologic and public health ...aspects of pulmonary diseases, with a focus on asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We have explored how environmental exposures, nutrition and diet, comorbidity and other factors influence the outcomes of diseases such as asthma and COPD. view more

  • Nicola Heller Lab

    Lab Website

    Research in the Nicola Heller Lab focuses on the immunobiology of macrophages. Our team explore...s how these cells impact diseases with an inflammatory element, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and obesity. Using a variety of techniques, including molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, mouse models and more, we study the role of IL-4/IL-13 signaling in asthma and allergic disease, as well as the role of alternatively activated macrophages (AAM) in the pathogenesis of allergic inflammation. Currently, we are researching the links between asthma and obesity, with a focus on the roles of gender and race. view more

    Principal Investigator:
    Paul Rothman, M.D.
    Medicine

    Research in the Paul Rothman Lab has focused on cytokines. We’ve investigated the role these mo...lecules play in the normal development of blood cells as well as the abnormal blood-cell development that leads to leukemia. We’ve also studied the function of cytokines in immune system responses to asthma and allergies. view more

  • Rasika Mathias Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Rasika Mathias, Sc.D.
    Medicine

    Research in the Rasika Mathias Lab focuses on the genetics of asthma in people of African ances...try. Our work led to the first genomewide association study of its kind in 2009. Currently, we are analyzing the whole-genome sequence of more than 1,000 people of African ancestry from the Consortium on Asthma among African-ancestry Populations in the Americas (CAAPA). CAAPA’s goal is to use whole-genome sequencing to expand our understanding of how genetic variants affect asthma risk in populations of African ancestry and to provide a public catalog of genetic variation for the scientific community. We’re also involved in the study of coronary artery disease though the GeneSTAR Program, which aims to identify mechanisms of atherogenic vascular diseases and attendant comorbidities. view more

  • Robert H. Brown Lab

    Lab Website

    Work in the Robert H. Brown Lab explores several topics within pulmonary physiology, with a lon...g-term goal of understanding the structural changes in the lungs that lead to the pathophysiology of lung disease. Our core studies examine the structure-function relationship of pulmonary airways and vessels as well as their role in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and reactive airway disease. Recent research has involved studying the mechanisms and treatment of COPD progression, new methods for treating asthma, and lung inflation and airway hyperresponsiveness. We are also exploring the impact of HIV infection on the etiology of lung disease and the pathophysiologic consequences of lung distention. view more

  • Sarbjit Saini Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Sarbjit Saini, M.D.
    Medicine

    The research in the Sarbjit Saini Laboratory focuses on IgE receptor biology and IgE receptor-m...ediated activation of blood basophils and mast cells. We have examined the role of IgE receptor expression and activation in allergic airways disease, anaphylaxis and chronic urticaria. Our research has been supported by the NIH, American Lung Association and the AAAAI. Our current research interests have focused mechanisms of diease in allergic asthma, allergic rhinitis and also translational studies in chronic idiopathic urticaria. view more
