Biagini Research Lab

The long term goals of the Biagini Lab are to improve the health of children by conducting research that promotes reduction and prevention of environmental exposures, and to advance the field asthma and allergic disease research by investigating the interplay of genetics with environmental exposures.

  • Genetic contributors to pediatric asthma and allergic disease
  • Interplay between genetics and secondhand smoke exposures in asthma development and severity
  • The role of smoke exposures in gene expression in children
  • Disparities in environmental exposures and allergic diseases
  • Biologic markers of exposure assessment and the effectiveness of smoking bans at reducing pediatric smoke exposure and asthma morbidity
  • Expertise in cohort building, including subject identification, recruitment and retention, biologic sample collection, exposure determination, and genetic analyses
  • Exposure determination, study design, subject identification, recruitment and retention as well as outcome classification
