Missions

The lung function analysis platform provides evaluation of strain-, sex-, and genespecific differences in breathing patterns. Using normal developmental conditions as well as different inflammatory stresses, we can use the lung as an organ system for first-line study of inflammatory sensitization or resistance. 

Tests

  • Assays breathing pattern
    • Spontaneously breathing 
    • Airway responsiveness
    • Invasive Airway responsiveness
    • Bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BAL)
  • In vivo inflammatory disease models Airway responsiveness
    • Ovabulmin-induced asthma model
    • HDM-induced lung inflammation
    • LPS-induced lung inflammation
