The Balestrieri’s lab focuses on the role of macrophages and phospholipases A2 (PLA2) in allergic and inflammatory disorders. We are currently using a combination of pre-clinical models of pulmonary inflammation, mouse and human cell-culture based assays to identify missing steps in the pathogenesis of asthma and pulmonary inflammation.
