Close Overview Contact Info & Locations Patient Ratings & Comments Programs & Services Asthma Treatment Program (Adult) COPD Program Department of Medicine Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine (Adult) Specialties & Conditions Asthma Chronic Cough Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Research Areas Cellular and Molecular Biology Asthma Special Interests Research Interests The glucocorticoid receptor is one of the most important therapeutic targets for the treatment of inflammatory disorders of the lung such as asthma. My laboratory investigates two aspects of glucocorticoid receptor signaling. First, we are studying the basic molecular mechanisms whereby glucocorticoids repress the expression of inflammatory genes in the airway. Second, we are investigating how various non-inflammatory genes that are regulated by glucocorticoids alter lung function. By defining new mechanisms of glucocorticoid action we ultimately seek to discover new targets for asthma therapeutics.
