Asthma, allergy and inflammation; functional genomics

Asthma is an increasingly common disease that affects about 20 million American children and adults. We are working to understand how proteins made by the immune system act within the lungs to cause some of the most important problems experienced by people with asthma. We also work on understanding newly discovered ways in which genes are turned on and off during health and disease.
