In our lab, we are interested in looking into the mechanisms behind sex-specific differences in lung diseases as it pertains to Neonatology.
We are looking for graduate students looking to push our research forward while learning vital skill sets for their all-round development as a scientist.

Sprouting Angiogenesis in male and female human pulmonary microvascular endothelial cells.
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), a debilitating lung disease with long-term consequences, is the most common morbidity in extremely premature neonates. Male babies have a higher incidence of BPD compared to females. We study how lung injury and repair is different between male and female neonates and elucidate the molecular mechanisms modulating these sex-specific differences.
