• Sivaprasad Lab

    The long-term goal of Dr. Sivaprasad’s research is to better understand the molecular basis of allergic diseases. Utilizing both in vitro and in vivo approaches the research focuses on elucidating the role of serine protease inhibitors in allergic pathophysiology.  The research interests of the Sivaprasad Lab include:

    • Development of statins as therapy to asthma
    • Determining the role of the serine protease inhibitor Serphinb3a in asthma and atopic dermatitis
    • Evaluating the role of Serpinb3a in regulating barrier function in the skin, lung, and gut
    • Epistatic interactions between barrier function genes and the consequences in atopic dermatitis
