My academic focus parallels my clinical focus. My clinically research has explored the risk of lung cancer in patients with scleroderma and the role of esophageal enlargement in progression of lung disease in Scleroderma. More recently, my research interests have expanded in working with our basic scientists to explore the pathobiology of inflammation, injury and fibrosis in the lungs of patients with ILD and pulmonary fibrosis.
My clinic area of interest and expertise is in the evaluation and management of interstitial lung disease with a particular focus on lung disease associated with connective tissue diseases such as scleroderma, myositis and other connective tissue diseases. I am the director of the Interstitial Lung Disease Program at Northwestern University and run our multidisciplinary ILD bimonthly conference.
