Research at NCIRE

NCIRE-The Veterans Health Research Institute is the leading private nonprofit institute devoted to Veterans health research in the United States. Our mission is to advance Veterans health through research.

We support the work of some of the nation's foremost physicians and scientists at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the premier biomedical research facility in the VA system. All have faculty appointments at the University of California, San Francisco, which has its own proud traditions of research and patient care. We also partner with the U.S. Department of Defense to support health research on behalf of our men and women in the Armed Forces.

Those who have served in uniform have given their best for their country. In return, we believe that they deserve nothing less than the best health care research we can provide.

Pathogenesis of Constrictive Bronchiolitis

Constrictive bronchiolitis is a pathology seen in chronic lung transplant rejection, graft-versus host disease following stem cell transplantation, following exposure to chemicals such as popcorn butter flavoring, and in veterans returning from conflicts in the middle east. Progressive constrictive bronchiolitis general causes lethal respiratory failure. My research group is focused on improving the diagnosis and treatment of constrictive bronchiolitis through research using clinical samples. We are particularly focused on the interactions between innate and adaptive immune responses in causing this pathology.
