Research & Clinical Interests
Dr. Summer is a board certified pulmonary and critical care physician and an NIH-funded basic science investigator. Work in his laboratory aims to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying cell and whole organ dysfunction in response to pulmonary insult. His work emphasizes the functional interconnections between cell signaling, metabolism and injury/repair mechanisms, and his laboratory applies a broad range of experimental approaches to characterize changes in the lung after acute (e.g., LPS, bleomycin, radiation) or chronic (e.g., obesity, chronic alcohol ingestion) pulmonary insult. Dr. Summer’s clinical interests encompass a broad range of respiratory disorders but his outpatient clinical focus is in care and in the treatment of patients with fibrotic lung disease.
