I am particularly interested in understanding the role which pulmonary macrophages play in determining the body's response to cigarette smoke exposure. We utilize advanced microscopy to understand the location of macrophages in human lungs to determine how cell location influences function. Clinical Interests My clinical interest is treating inpatients with critical illness.
