I am a tenured Professor at the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine, School of Medicine, University of Alabama at Birmingham. My research focuses on oxidative stress/antioxidants, aging, and aging related diseases, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). I have obtained numerous grants from different funding agencies including National Institute of Health (NIH), American Lung Association, and Department of Defense (DOD) to study the etiology and pathogenesis of IPF as well as explore the therapeutic drugs for IPF. I have published 80 peer-reviewed papers in the field.
