  • I am a pulmonologist and current Chief of the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Northwestern Medicine. My research, which is continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) since 2001, is focused on understanding why age is the strongest risk factor for the development of chronic lung disease. I lead a multi-investigator program project funded by the NIH’s National Institute on Aging testing the hypothesis that dysfunction in the lung’s proteostasis network underlies age-related susceptibility to influenza A infection.
