Clinical Research and Interests:
Dr. Dudek’s research seeks to mechanistically characterize the regulation of pulmonary vascular barrier function, with a particular emphasis on in vitro and animal models of acute lung injury syndromes. His recent work has focused on endothelial cell cytoskeletal rearrangements involved in regulating pulmonary vascular leak as well as identifying novel agents for reversing this pathophysiological process.
