Special Interests

Dr. Bratton’s clinical and research interests span the areas of cellular and molecular mechanisms in allergy, asthma, innate immunity, and inflammation. Her laboratory investigates endogenous signals for the resolution of inflammation, including lipid mediators and signals generated by dying inflammatory cells, with the goal of exploiting such signals therapeutically in inflammatory conditions.
