ABOUT THE LAB
Life threatening human diseases drastically alter cellular homeostasis triggering cellular dysfunction, tissue damage, and death. Proteases are the major executioners of cell death, and are blocked, in part, by endogenous inhibitors such as serpins. Our laboratory focuses on the interplay between cell stress (e.g., infection, hypoxia, hyperoxia, and electrolyte disturbances), protease activation, and serpin blockade.
