Dr. Jeanine D' Armiento

Professor of Medicine (in Anesthesiology and Physiology and Cellular Biophysics)

Research Description

The goal of Dr. D’Armiento’s research program is to develop insight into lung physiology and pathology through understanding the mechanisms altering lung injury and repair and translating these findings into practical clinical solutions. Her research studies mainly focus on the role of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) in normal physiology and in human disease integration both in vitro and in vivo approaches. Dr. D’Armiento’s laboratory is also uniquely situated to characterize the molecular changes in the study of smoke-induced injury and disease so as to identify potential therapeutic targets for smoke induced disease processes. Dr. D'Armiento is also Principal Investigator of the LAMLab - The Center for LAM and Rare Lung Diseases at Columbia University.
