We’re funded!!!! Our NIH/NIAID R21 “Nrf2 regulation of alveolar macrophage immune responses in vivo to Mycobacterium tuberculosis” has been awarded. We can’t wait to get started evaluating the role of Nrf2 in regulating alveolar macrophage innate immune functions during infection!
Our lab’s first review paper is published in Expert Reviews in Molecular Medicine: “Alveolar macrophages: novel therapeutic targets for respiratory diseases.”
