Research:
• General interests: Basic mechanisms of the inflammatory response, inflammatory pathologies, microcirculation, vascular biology, neutrophil-endothelial interactions. Pathologies addressed to date include IBD & gastritis (gastrointestinal), ARDS (pulmonary), ischemia/reperfusion (heart), In general, pathologenesis is explored using in vivo (whole animal/organ) and in vitro (cell/molecular biology) approaches.
