Dr. Boyne is building a basic and translational research program within the Host-Microbial Interactions, Inflammation, and Immunity Neighborhood at the Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute. Her research focus is on cellular mechanisms driving infection and inflammation in the lungs. The lab is interested in better understanding the host-microbial interactions that impact the microbiota within the cystic fibrosis (CF) airway to aid in the development of alternative and adjunctive therapies to prevent and control infection in CF. The research team is also investigating the potential utility of exhaled breath condensate in informing these studies.
