Research Interests

Dr. Eiserich's research interests are focused on chronic and acute inflammation, most specifically on the cellular and biochemical mechanisms underlying endothelial cell dysfunction commonly associated with inflammatory disorders of the vasculature. He 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. Dr. 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, Dr. Eiserich does not see patients.
