The Besner Lab at Nationwide Children’s aims to eliminate necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and its downstream consequences.
The Britt Lab studies mechanisms that contribute to corticosteroid insensitivity in airway diseases.
The Chen Lab examines pathways involved in vascular remodeling and smooth muscle cell proliferation, the pathogenic hallmarks of pulmonary hypertension.
The Nelin Lab’s focus is on inflammatory lung injury and the mechanisms leading to lung diseases, particularly bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD).
The main focus of the Reynolds Lab involves elucidating the mechanisms involved in airway epithelial tissue repair using mouse models and human cell cultures to pave the way for the eventual use of human tissue stem cell therapy to treat cystic fibrosis and other forms of chronic lung disease.
