Benjamin Singer Lab

Our Lab

Our laboratory focuses on determinants of resolution and repair of acute lung inflammation and injury. Our ultimate goal is to unravel the factors controlling resolution and repair and exploit those factors as therapies for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)—a devastating disorder responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of people each year.

Along with our collaborators, we are also interested in how aging and metabolism affect the lung immune system, particularly regulatory T cells and other lymphocyte subsets.
