Jason P. Eiserich has broad lecturing and teaching experience and has presented at national and international society meetings. He now is working on investigatory grants from the American Heart Association and National Institutes of Health. Eiserich has published extensively in the area of free radical metabolism and pathophysiology of lung inflammation, and his work has been cited hundreds of times in prestigious journals, including the Journal of Biological Chemistry, Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics, and Nature. He also is a member of the scientific advisory board for Biochemical Journal. As a researcher, Eiserich does not see patients.
Vascular and Pulmonary Inflammation: Biochemical, cellular and physiological aspects of vascular endothelial cell dysfunction and pulmonary epithelial cell injury during inflammation. Roles of nitric oxide signaling in inflammatory diseases and its modulation by neutrophil-derived enzymes (ie. myeloperoxidase).
Cellular Oxidant Signaling: Functions of non-phagocytic vascular NADPH oxidases in the regulation of cell proliferation and nitric oxide signaling. Oxidative signaling in cancer and its effects on posttranslational modification of microtubules, and implications for cellular proliferation and transformation.
Inhalation Toxicology: Environmental/atmospheric oxidant pollutant (ozone and nitrogen dioxide) effects on biological systems. Use of Drosophila as a model "biosensor" for studying the biochemical, cellular and genetic effects of atmospheric oxidant pollutants.
