Areas of Research

Inflammation - Anti-inflammatory glucocorticoids
Glucocorticoids, clinically referred to as corticosteroids, are widely used in asthma, and many other inflammatory diseases due to their profound anti-inflammatory properties. We seek to elucidate mechanisms by which glucocorticoids are able to exert these anti-inflammatory effects. Such research is essential to improve the effectiveness of glucocorticoids in those conditions that respond less well to glucocorticoid therapies.
