Lung Epithelial Inflammation by Lysophosphatidic Acid

  • Morris, Andrew (PI)

Grants and Contracts Details


Dr. Morris willbe involved in the quantitation and structural characterization of LPA biological samples and invetigations of the role of lipid phosphate phosphatases (LPPs) in LPA-mediated IL-8 secretion and lung inflammation. Dr Morris willcontribute vectors for the expression of LPP and PLD enzymes in lung epithelial cells. Dr. Morris has extensive experience in studies of these enzymes. His expertise in PLD and its role in cell function will strengthenthe proposedexperimentson LPA-mediatedPLD activation and IL-8 secretion.
