报告人简介:

Dr. Kunkel’s areas of research have centered on assessing molecular mechanisms of lung inflammation by investigating cytokine directed cell-to-cell communication circuits. A significant amount of this work helped to launch and define the field of chemokine biology. In addition, he has been involved in assessing epigenetic regulation of immune cell phenotypes that dictate the expression pattern of inflammatory mediators. His studies in cytokine and chemokine biology are internationally recognized and have provided a clearer understanding of how these proteins are regulated and participate in the initiation, maintenance, and resolution of acute and chronic lung disease. He has co-authored over 600 peer reviewed manuscripts, has been granted 14 United States patents, an H-Index of greater than 100, presented over 150 lectures as a visiting professor/lecturer in the past 10 years, and maintained continuous funding of major National Institute of Health grants for a number of years.
