Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine
Bio As a child of age 8, I was introduced to science at the local university washing glassware in my father’s immunology laboratory. I have spent a lifetime refining and building on those early life experiences.
As a next generation expert in immunology, bridging my father’s interest in laboratory research, my passion is in merging clinical care with scientific patterns. Having seen over 10,000 patients, I have tried to use clinical pattern recognition to bridge current concepts in the scientific literature with goals to provide advances to, and the best clinical care possible. These efforts have led to collaborations both far and near, including as expert panel member in allergy/immunology reviewing Canada’s National Centres of Excellence in Research strategic planning goals, an invited editorial for the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, a book chapter on allergen immunotherapy, reviewer for leading journals to help shape the flow of ideas moving science forward, and as editor-in-chief for the Journal of Respiratory Disorders.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in the prevention and control of critical care-related illnesses and complications, including ventilator-associated pneumonia, spread of nosocomial infections, and prognosis of multiple organ system failure in intensive care units. Infections and complications of therapy in immunocompromised hosts, including effects of chemotherapy and hematopoetic stem cell transplants is another interest.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests We use genetics and genomics methodologies to identify novel ARDS pathobiology; we hope that this will enable identification of novel biomarkers, phenotypes, and treatments for the disease. We are building a plasma biobank of critically ill patients at Stanford, with a particular focus on metabolic changes in critical illness.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory examines apoptotic and cell signaling pathways in cancer and lung disease. We are studying signaling pathways that regulate oxidative stress responses and cancer cell growth. Part of these studies focus on analysis of non-canonical transcription regulatory functions of the TERC and Tert components of telomerase in lung disease and cancer.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests We have an active collaborative project examining basic and clinical aspects of non-tuberculous mycobacterial lung infection in non-immune compromised adults. Studies have examined possible cellular immune mechanisms for increased susceptibility to these infections, and are also investigating aspects of optimal diagnosis and treatment. In addition, a clinical and translational research program is investigating the causes and genetic factors underlying the evolution of bronchiectasis.
