RESEARCH FOCUS

My clinical research interests include the use of 3D technology for endoscopic pituitary and skull base surgery, sublingual immunotherapy outcomes, and office-based rhinology procedures.  My basic science research focus is sinonasal epithelial intercellular junctional proteins, including regulation of epithelial permeability, inflammatory mediator interactions, and their role in the pathophysiology of nasal polyposis.  I have recently been awarded two research grants for her work on sinonasal epithelial junctional proteins: the American Rhinologic Society New Investigator Award through the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery CORE Grant program and a KL2 Mentored Clinical and Translational Research Scholars grant through the Atlanta Clinical & Translational Sciences Institute and the National Institutes of Health.
