RESEARCH SUMMARY

Molecular mechanisms underlying airway constrictor hyperresponsiveness in asthma

I co-direct the Univ of Chicago's NHLBI-sponsored T32 Research Training Program in Respiratory Biology, co-lead an NHLBI Multidisciplinary K12 Training Programs in Lung Omics, and head the University of Chicago's NCATS Clinical and Translational Science Award. My own research program addresses asthma. I have extensive experience studying airway smooth muscle (ASM) function and dysfunction in asthma, having studied smooth muscle specific gene transcription, protein accumulation, and hypertrophy, and signaling mechanisms that regulate these; ASM contraction and force fluctuation-induced relengthening, and the mechanisms that regulate these; and ASM mediated-airway narrowing, airway constrictor responsiveness, and lung function in both animal models and humans.
My ORCID is 0000-0002-0898-8530.
My Scopus ID is 7006796752.
My NIH COMMONS name is jsolway.
