  • David Cooper Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    David Cooper, M.D.
    Medicine

    Research in the David S. Cooper Lab focuses primarily on hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer. To...pics of recent published studies include the NTCTCS staging systems for differentiated thyroid cancer, radioiodine remnant ablation in low-risk differentiated thyroid cancer, and the link between race/ethnicity and the prevalence of thyrotoxicosis in young Americans. view more

    Research Areas: neoplasms, hyperthyroidism, cancer, thyroidectomy, thyroid, Graves’ disease, hypothyroidism
  • Meredith McCormack Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Meredith McCormack, M.D., M.H.S.
    Medicine

    Research in the Meredith McCormack Lab deals primarily with pulmonary diseases, such as asthma ...and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and the role of environmental exposures in lung diseases. We have researched the factors that contribute to inner-city asthma, with a focus on how particulate matter air pollution impacts pulmonary function. We are also part of the LIBERATE clinical study, which is focused on patients who experience difficulty breathing and have been diagnosed with severe emphysema. We also have a longstanding interest in the effects of race/ethnicity, poverty and urbanization on nutrition and food allergies. view more

    Research Areas: emphysema, environmental exposure, asthma, lung disease, COPD, health disparities
  • Nae-Yuh Wang Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Nae-Yuh Wang, Ph.D., M.S.
    Medicine

    The Nae-Yuh Wang Lab concentrates on a wide range of multicenter studies and randomized control...led trials. Recent studies have focused on pediatric cochlear implantation and longitudinal data analysis. One recent study found that partnering with primary care providers to deliver weight loss programs may promote greater participant satisfaction and weight loss. Another active study is assessing the effectiveness of promising interventions to reduce race disparities in live donor kidney transplantation. view more

    Research Areas: epidemiology, longitudinal data, kidney transplants, cochlear implant, biostatistics, weight loss
  • 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

  • The Bigos Lab

    The Bigos Lab focuses on a Precision Medicine approach to the treatment of psychiatric illness.... In addition, this lab employs functional neuroimaging and genetics as biomarkers in neuropsychiatric drug development. A recent study used functional MRI to test the neural effects of a drug with the potential to treat cognitive dysfunction in schizophrenia. Other studies aim to identify patient-specific variables including sex, race, and genetics that impact drug clearance and clinical response to better select and dose antipsychotics and antidepressants. view more
