Recipient Non-Classical Monocytes Drive Primary Graft Dysfunction In Cystic Fibrosis Recipients

Project: Research project

Project Details


This proposal will provide me with adequate research training in a collaborative effort within a
multidisciplinary investigators team with complementary skill sets comprised of: Ankit Bharat, MD (Chief
of Thoracic Surgery and Surgical Director of Lung Transplantation with expertise in transplant
immunology), Scott Budinger MD (Chief of Pulmonary Medicine with expertise in monocyte/macrophage
biology), and Alexander Misharin MD PhD (Expertise in Systems Biology and Bioinformatics as well as
multichannel flowcytometry). The team has a strong record of publications in lung transplantation with
laboratories adjacent to each other. Dr. Bharat’s laboratory has a microsurgery set-up and has performed
over 500 mouse lung transplants with over 90% survival rate. Northwestern University provides an
outstanding environment with ample resources to complete all the experiments outlined in this proposal.
