Personal Statement

As a physician-scientist, I have the opportunity to ask questions that are directly informed by the patients I care for in the intensive care unit. I am able to take these questions to the laboratory and utilize the tremendous resources of the research community at Cedars-Sinai to address them in a meaningful way. My hope is that by understanding the mechanisms underlying hypoxemia in acute lung injury, the Jones Laboratory can develop novel treatments to ameliorate the devastating consequences of this disease for our patients.
