Research

Research in Dr. Bozza’s laboratory focuses on molecular and cellular mechanisms of leukocyte activation and generation of inflammatory mediators in host defense and other forms of inflammation. The main areas of investigation are the biogenesis and functions of lipid droplets in host pathogen-interactions; sepsis pathogenesis and biomarkers; and mechanisms of leukocyte activation and trafficking in pulmonary inflammation.
