Khurana Hershey Research Lab


Khurana Hershey Lab Overview

Dr. Gurjit K Khurana Hershey has built a large research program focused on delineating the genetic and environmental factors that promote asthma / allergy phenotypes and dissecting the mechanisms by which they confer risk. She has been continuously NIH funded for over 16 years.

Dr. Khurana Hershey is the PI of an NIH funded U19 Asthma and Allergic Diseases Cooperative Research Center, the Cincinnati site for the Inner City Asthma Consortium (ICAC) funded by the NIAID, and the Ohio Pediatric Asthma Repository funded by ODJFS and OCHA. 

The goal of the Khurana Hershey Research Lab is identifying the genes, environmental exposures, and immunology of pathways important in asthma and allergy, especially at the epithelial surfaces, and dissecting the molecular mechanisms underlying their contributions.


Dr. Khurana Hershey is an author of over 100 articles in journals. View Publications From The Khurana Hershey Lab
