Dr. Mathur is studying in vitro co-cultures of human peripheral blood eosinophils and epithelial cells to determine whether eosinophils can regulate epithelial responses to innate immune stimuli and viruses. Dr. Mathur is also recruiting older and younger asthma subjects to determine whether immunosenescence influences airway inflammation, the clinical presentation of asthma, and the therapeutic implications for the elderly asthma patient.
