Airway smooth muscle remodeling in chronic lung disease; identification/function of HIF target genes in pulmonary epithelium; transcriptional control of epithelial plasticity during lung Injury/remodeling


James Bridges, PhD, investigates the role of hypoxia inducible factors (HIFs) and downstream gene targets in chronic lung disease. These goals are achieved by utilizing both gain and loss-of-function mouse models to evaluate the mechanistic basis underlying the pathophysiologic changes in pulmonary function associated with altered HIF activity.
