Academic Interests

Dr. Mutlu's research is focused on the mechanisms of that underlie the development and resolution of acute lung injury/ARDS and the mechanisms by which particulate matter air pollution causes acute ischemic cardiovascular events. He has made significant contributions to our understanding of the role of alveolar epithelial beta-2 adrenergic receptors in ARDS, including identification of the mechanisms that aid in clearance of excess fluid after lung injury. Currently, his laboratory focuses on the molecular mechanisms by which alveolar macrophage beta-2 adrenergic receptors contribute to the release of IL-6 during lung injury/inflammation.
