Welcome to the Clemens lab

Neutrophils play a key role in host defense and have an ever-expanding list of roles in health and disease. However, neutrophil dysregulation can lead to catastrophic inflammation. In the intensive care unit, neutrophil dysfunction contributes to pathology in many diseases including sepsis, organ transplant, acute lung injury and stroke.

Our lab is interested in the molecular mechanisms that regulate neutrophil activation.
