Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

We have an active collaborative project examining basic and clinical aspects of non-tuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) lung infection in non-immune compromised adults. Studies have examined possible cellular immune mechanisms for increased susceptibility to these infections, and are also investigating aspects of optimal diagnosis and treatment. In addition, a clinical and translational research program is investigating the causes and genetic factors underlying the evolution of bronchiectasis. Projects include genetic susceptibility in bronchiectasis, as well as therapy projects for adults with pulmonary NTM infections.
