My overall area of research interest is the structure-function relationship of pulmonary airways and vessels, and how they relate to reactive airway disease. Current research interests include High-Resolution Computed Tomography of the pulmonary airways and vessels in vivo. We are studying: 1) the regional differences in airways constriction in response to a variety of differential bronchoconstrictors; 2) the location and mechanism of inhalational-induced bronchodilation; 3) the effects of various physiologic stimuli on airway constriction; 4) pulmonary vasculature and airway interaction following various physiologic stimuli; and 5) 3-D reconstruction of the airway tree.
