Research synopsis: 

I no longer maintain an active research laboratory or accept dissertation students.

I remain active in graduate education through teaching, service on thesis committees and qualifying exam committees.

Research in my lab focused on mechanisms of normal development of the fetal lung and how this is interrupted in diseases of the newborn.
