Dr. Horani’s main research interest focuses on airway epithelial cell pathogensis including primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), a genetic condition that results in impaired mucociliary clearance, causing progressive involvement of the respiratory tract characterized by recurrent infections of the lungs, middle ear, and paranasal sinuses. Dr. Horani is the recipient of multiple scientific awards related to his work in pediatric research. Working alongside members of a multidisciplinary team at Washington University in St. Louis, Dr. Horani’s work in the laboratory examines the importance of different genes in the pathogenesis of primary ciliary dyskinesia and studies the function of several proteins in the assembly of motile cilia, a structure known to be defective in PCD.
