Metabolites as biomarkers and mediators of host resilience in acute lung injury
March 4, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 amFree
Please join NC TraCS and the Marsico Lung Institute for a CTSA Grand Rounds seminar on March 4 at 9 a.m. with Tomeka Suber, MD, PhD. Suber will discuss the pathogenesis of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) with a focus on her work identifying metabolites that are predictive of ARDS sub-phenotypes.
Suber is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh and a K Scholar. She studies host defense mechanisms in intrapulmonary bacterial infections that lead to acute respiratory distress syndrome. She has also studied how the regulation of protein stability by the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway modulates lung epithelial responses during inflammation.
Suber received her undergraduate degree in Chemistry at UNC-Chapel Hill in 2002. She completed her graduate and medical degrees at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in 2010.
For any questions regarding the event, please email Susan Pusek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
