Van Winkle Lab

Exploring the toxicology and pathobiology of the lung
using cellular and molecular approaches

Coming Events

  • Air Pollution Journal Club for Graduate students: Thursdays 11:30 CHE conference Room

We study the effects of environmental pollution on the lung. In particular we are interested in how exposure to lung toxicants leads to lung disease and alters normal lung biology. Pollutants under investigation include: ozone, allergens, tobacco smoke, particulate matter, bisphenol A and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons such as naphthalene.
