    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.
