Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care)
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.

Norman Rizk, M.D.
Senior Associate Dean, Clinical Affairs in the School of Medicine and the Berthold and Belle N. Guggenhime Professor in Medicine
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.
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Pulmonary and Critical Care) at the Stanford University Medical Center
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.
