Researcher | Research Overview
Dr. Fernandez-Gonzalez is interested in the pathobiology of the lung during developmental prematurity and inflammation, and the cellular pulmonary responses associated with the establishment of disease. In particular, she investigates the contribution of macrophage activation in mechanisms of lung injury and repair following exposure to noxious concentrations of oxygen in murine experimental models. Her ultimate goal is to examine new players related to the innate immune response that can be used as mediators of therapeutic action for the treatment of lung disease.
