Faculty / Staff

Investigators in the Institute for Environmental Medicine have vigorous basic research programs with major themes related to oxidant stress and anti-oxidant defense, endothelial cell function including the role of stem cells, and lung surfactant metabolism. Clinical interests include wound healing, acute lung injury, and carbon monoxide poisoning. The range of research techniques and experimental approaches are extremely broad and include: protein expression; mouse transgenics; isolated organ perfusion; analytical biochemistry; microscopy (multiphoton) of living tissue; and primary cell isolation and culture.
