The Ziady laboratory focuses on the differential regulation of Nrf2 signaling pathways in the inflammatory lung disease observed cystic fibrosis (CF). The lab has unique expertise in developing and characterizing DNA nanoparticles for nonviral gene delivery to the lung, liver, and brain. In addition, the lab has extensive experience with proteomic analyses for biomarker discovery and the examination of systems biology of various tissues.
