Jones Laboratory

The Jones Laboratory is interested in the mechanisms underlying the severe hypoxemia (low oxygen levels) seen in patients who develop acute lung injury. Currently, the Jones Lab is using a mouse model to study the relationship between blood flow and inflammation in the lung and the role of IL-1b in ventilation/perfusion mismatching in acute lung injury.

The Jones Laboratory is affiliated with the Women's Guild Lung Institute, Department of Medicine and Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.
