Our labs

Gill Lab

Michelle Gill, MD, PhD

Horani Lab

Amjad Horani, MD

The Horani lab research focuses on airway epithelial cell differentiation and regulation with special interest in cilia assembly and how it relates to impaired mucociliary clearance and the biology of primary ciliary dyskinesia. The lab uses primary culture of human and mouse cells and employs genetic manipulation methods to investigate the function of novel proteins involved in ciliogenesis.

Research profile

Polineni Lab

Deepika Polineni, MD, MPH

Rubenstein Lab

Ronald Rubenstein, MD, PhD

The Rubenstein lab focuses on the mechanisms by which small molecules may improve the function of mutant proteins that cause disease due to abnormal biogenesis and trafficking. These studies initially focused on epithelial ion channels relevant to Cystic Fibrosis, and have expanded to address fundamental biologic questions related to the regulation of protein biogenesis and trafficking in a number of other diseases and conditions.
