Senior Investigator Research Interests
Dr. Torabi-Parizi’s program focuses on understanding innate immune cell and effector T cell behavior in peripheral tissues, mechanisms regulating such behavior, and possible interventions that might modulate these responses to improve host outcomes in the context of critical illness, with a particular emphasis on checkpoint pathways. Her current work includes establishing rodent models of sepsis and acute lung injury that allow for the evaluation of molecular mechanisms of host injury and the introduction of therapeutic interventions to alter outcomes.
