Interests

Description of Interests

I am interested in the mechanisms of pathogenesis and treatment of a variety of allergic and inflammatory diseases associated with allergy. These include chronic rhinosinusitis, asthma, hay fever, rhinitis, food allergy and others. We also study the mechanisms of action of antiinflammatory glucocorticoids. Our studies focus on the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying disease and steroid action as well as developing strategies to for new treatments.
