Somerville, Lindsay (Braciale)

Postdoctoral Researcher
MD

Research Interest:

Lindsay joined Dr. Braciale’s lab as a fellow of UVA’s Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine program with the goal of building a strong research base that will carry her into a career in clinical research and academic medicine.  Her research interests include infection-mediated acute lung injury and the processes that lead to loss-of-function and fibrosis.  Building on Dr. Cardani’s work in the Braciale Lab with influenza-induced mouse lung injury, she is investigating cell-cell signaling and the effects of influenza virus on human alveolar macrophages and alveolar epithelial cells.
