Research Summary

The Joss-Moore Lab studies how perinatal insults affect essential fatty acid driven molecular mechanisms predisposing to lung disease. We seek to understand contributions from the placenta, epigenetic signaling pathways, and fatty acid sub-types, as well as the mechanisms behind sex-divergent responses. Our studies involve molecular, morphometric, physiologic and genomic approaches. Our research is supported by the National Institutes of Health, and Primary Children’s Hospital Foundation.
