Our lab's mission is to develop advanced machine learning algorithms that integrate multiple omics data (e.g. genetics, genomics, epigenetics, metabolomics), environmental exposures (e.g. allergens, viral infections, lung microbiome), images, and clinical characteristics to personalize treatments or phenotyping pulmonary diseases such as sarcoidosis, asthma, and ARDS.

James, P. Bridges, PhD, Lab
Research efforts in the Bridges laboratory are focused toward understanding the molecular regulation of epithelial cell specification and maturation during lung development; and determining the molecular mechanisms that control pulmonary surfactant pool sizes in the postnatal and adult lung, with particular interest in rare pediatric and adult lung diseases associated with surfactant dysfunction.
