Clinical Research and Interests:
Dr. Jacobson’s research focuses on lung vascular diseases. His lab studies the cellular mechanisms involved in these diseases and employs relevant animal models of acute lung injury and radiation-induced lung injury to identify and evaluate novel therapeutic strategies. He is also interested in identifying genetic predispositions to acute lung injury in ICU patients and the management of patients with interstitial lung diseases.
