Dr. Ghadiali’s laboratory uses a combination of engineering, mathematical and molecular biology tools to to identify the mechanobiological mechanisms responsible for various respiratory and pulmonary/critical care disorders. A major emphasis of the lab is the translation of basic scientific knowledge about how mechanical factors influence disease progression into novel therapeutic agents for several disorders including Otitis Media/Upper Respiratory Infections, Acute Lung Injury, Lung and Breast Cancer and Pulmonary Fibrosis. The laboratory conducts in-vitro, in-vivo and ex-vivo experiments and also develops multi-scale computational models of the respiratory system. Current focus areas for the lab included 1) Biomechanical Mechanisms of Upper Respiratory Disorders, 2) Mechanobiology of Cellular Injury and Inflammation during Mechanical Ventilation and 3) Biomechanical Mechanisms of Cancer Cell Metastasis. Dr. Ghadiali’s research has been/is supported by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Pelotonia Cancer Research Program and the American Heart Association.
