Nathachit ‘James’ Limjunyawong, BS
James received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand. In 2010, he has joined the Department of Environmental Health Sciences as a graduate student.
James' current area of research is focusing on the pathogenesis of chronic lung diseases particularly COPD, asthma and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. He is also interested in how environmental pollutants such as ozone can cause lung tissue damage. This includes the interdisciplinary approaches from the molecular and immunological mechanisms, pathophysiology as well as epigenetic alteration.
Matthew Craig, PhD
Matt Craig received his PhD from Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. He trained under Dr. Alan Scott to study the regulation of immune-mediated inflammation during malaria and hookworm infections. His current research interests include applying his training in immunology and physiology to the study of how pulmonary inflammation impacts lung structure and function.
Matt has extensive research experience in animal models of respiratory disease and an excellent understanding of the pulmonary immune system. He is focusing on assessing chronic changes to lung structure and function as a consequence of pulmonary inflammation, specifically in the context of emphysema.
Boris Lande, PhD
Boris Lande is an emeritus laboratory assistant, who provides important theoretical insights to graduate students and fellows into all aspects of lung structure and function. He also has considerable expertise in the construction of home-made laboratory prototypes that often help direct student research into new directions.
