Our research program is focused on investigating the impact of environmental exposures on pulmonary and immune system development during the first year of life. We use animal models and cell culture methods to address questions related to mucosal immune mechanisms in pediatric populations, with an emphasis on understanding the susceptibility of children to lung disease. The goal of our work is to determine how the environment influences the course of respiratory health across the lifespan.
