Members of the Alberta Respiratory Centre belong to several Research Teams. Each Research Team focuses on specific areas of pulmonary research. Together, our Research Teams cover the full spectrum of basic to clinical science, with special emphasis in translational research approaches. Members of these teams are located at distinct sites across the campus, including (but not limited to):
Heritage Medical Research Centre
Walter C. Mackenzie Centre
Airway Inflammation Team
The members of the Airway Inflammation Team focus on basic genetic, cellular, and molecular mechanisms underlying pulmonary diseases. We are specifically interested in the study of airway and lung diseases with translational potential.
Our current studies are focused on acute lung injury, asthma, and pulmonary fibrosis, but we have a more wide interest in airway diseases.
The Airway Inflammation Team is based in shared laboratory space in 177, 559, 567, and 574 Heritage Medical Research Centre. We have state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, including quantitative PCR machines, tissue culture area, fluorescence and confocal microscopes, infrared scanner, gel documentation system, Western blot apparatus, and 96-well plate readers.
Our faculty members are interested in recruiting new trainees to learn laboratory techniques with a translational emphasis in airway diseases.
