Research Overview

  • My research primarily focuses on the biology of human sweat gland cells with an emphasis on development of methods of cell culture, electrophysiological characterization of cultured cells, and the regulation and pharmacological modulation of CFTR expressed in these cells. Another area of interest is the impact of inflammation and tissue remodeling on ion channel function in airway cells. Studies include examining the effect on cellular electrophysiological changes following release of inflammatory mediators. Recent studies examine the potential role of extracellular vesicles in transferring CFTR protein and mRNA to epithelial cells.
