Our research interests in the laboratory focus on the role of human T cells, specifically natural regulatory T cells (Treg, in immunological diseases. We aim to differentiate the mechanisms of action of regulatory T cell suppressive function. We study how pollution, such as diesel exhause, disrupt Treg suppressive function and how chemokines, like lymphotactin, enhance Treg suppressive function. We also study Treg function in tolerance.

Clinical Associate Professor (Affiliated) [VAPAHCS], Med/Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine
Bio My training is in Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine, and I've been blessed to be part of the care of many patients and their families. My clinical research interests have been in the field of critical care medicine and ARDS, a type of acute respiratory failure seen commonly in patients with severe injuries or illnesses. I also have a particular interest in evaluating and improving processes for care. Issues like standardizing processes to improve reliability, improving safety of handoffs, and exploring ways to teach "roundsmanship" (the process of discussing patients' care with a group of providers) are current interests of mine.
The future of medical care depends on training the next generation of providers, and I'm thankful to be part of training this next generation. Teaching at the bedside or in formal classroom settings gives me great joy and satisfaction. I'm delighted to work with a great, multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, respiratory therapists, and pharmacists. I add to that team our patients and families, for it truly takes a team to provide care that is both excellent and compassionate.
Stanford University Professor in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our lab focuses primarily on the contribution of the immune response to lung disease. We are specifically examining the contribution of inflammation to the development of pulmonary hypertension. We also study how airway remodeling occurs in transplantation with specific respect to the microvascular circulation and to the initiation of fibroproliferation.
