Professional Summary:

I am engaged in clinical, teaching and research responsibilities related to the evaluation and treatment of patients with pulmonary disease or patients who are critically ill. My inpatient practice is primarily located at the medical intensive care unit (MICU) at the Buffalo General Medical Center (BGMC). The MICU provides ongoing medical care to patients who are critically ill and require significant life support therapies to sustain life or vital bodily functioning. I am specifically interested in asthma, COPD, interstitial lung disease, pleural disease, pulmonary hypertension and lung cancer, but deal with a variety of disease.

I evaluate patients with pulmonary disorders including shortness of breath, lung masses, abnormal chest imaging, abnormal pulmonary function tests, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, pleural disease, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary hypertension and lung cancer, at the UBMD practice location at Conventus. As a member of the UBMD pulmonary division I provide inpatient pulmonary consultation at both BGMC and Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

Currently I am focusing on the analysis of Big Data in medical/healthcare fields. I am particularly focused on the application of drug repurposing in translation and clinic research.

Additionally, I am engaged in the study of the human airways microbiome and metagenome. The human microbiome is the the collection of all the microbial organisms in a human body, and the corresponding metagenome is the collection of the genes, and gene products of the microbes. Due the potential impact of the microbiome on human health and disease, I am interested in studying the putative effects the interaction with human hosts, specifically innate immunity interaction with the metagenome in lung disease.

My collaborators include the Division of Allergy and Immunology. We endeavor to elucidate immune cell function in airway diseases such as asthma and COPD. Our research focuses on the development of therapeutics aimed at novel targets identified as important in the molecular basis of pulmonary disease; efficacious laboratory results will generate more effective treatment plans for patients.

I am actively involved in teaching medical students, residents and fellows about the appropriate care of the patient with pulmonary disease and the critically ill patient.
