Dr. Simon’s research objective is to understand the genetic and environmental effects on airway structure and function. Specifically, she is interested in the role of the airway epithelium in the regulation of lung development and inflammation.Recently, Dr. Simon has applied mouse model techniques to study the increased incidence of asthma or airway dysfunction in sickle cell lung disease. She is also interested in elucidating the cellular and molecular phenotypes of severe asthma in children.
Dr. Simon’s additional clinical research interests lie in aerodigestive disorders and how diseases involving the gastrointestinal tract may contribute to disease of the airways and vice versa. She has been an active participant in the formation of the Aerodigestive Center of Excellence.
