Profile Picture

We are defining the epithelial cell pathways triggered by native allergens and the downstream activation of resident immune cells, and examining how these two events drive the transition of the immune response towards allergic inflammation.

Our long term goal is to determine how allergens and epithelial damage exhaust repair mechanisms in the airway mucosa, disrupting normal tissue healing and promoting the transition to epithelial and olfactory dysfunction.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
