My previous investigative focus has involved optimization of diagnosis, prevention and targeted management of life-threatening perioperative bleeding. Currently, my focus involves the attenuation of chronic lung allograft dysfunction and the specific management of cellular rejection of lung transplants with respect to attenuation or arresting the decline in lung function related to Bronchiolitis Obliterans to enhance quality of life and prolong survival.
