My research is working to understand how the matricellular protein, periostin, activates lung mesenchymal cells to promote fibrotic outcomes. There is a particular focus on agents which stimulate periostin release, the integrins which recognize periostin in lung mesenchymal cells and the signals which lead to cell survival and activation.
