Dr. Monica Goldklang

Assistant Professor of Medicine (in Anesthesiology)

Research Description

Dr. Goldklang’s main area of research interest is in translational studies investigating the pathogenesis of smoking-related lung disease. Her work involves understanding the mechanisms of protease upregulation in lung injury. She is currently working on a project investigating factors that alter MMP-13 expression and activity in lung disease. Moving forward, Dr. Goldklang has received NIH K08 funding to investigate the role of ion channels in smoking-related lung disease. A broader understanding of intracellular calcium regulation, through BK channel and ryanodine receptor function, in lung injury is a central focus of this work.
