    Collapse Overview
    My research is focused primarily on understanding the therapeutic and mechanistic effects of bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in experimental models of sepsis and lung injury. MSCs have been demonstrated to exert a variety of beneficial properties in infection related lung damage. Specifically, I am investigating the interplay between toll like receptors and protease activated receptors (PARs) on MSC survival and therapeutic activity.

    Separately, I am interested in the potential therapeutic effects of PAR1 antagonism in experimental pneumonia and sepsis in vivo, and in particular the role of PAR1 on innate immune cells in the pathogenesis of infection related lung injury.
