The goal of the Bonner Lab is to explore and investigate mechanisms of environmental lung diseases (asthma, fibrosis, cancer) caused by emerging toxicants that pose a threat to human health and the environment. Our work is focused on investigating mechanisms of pulmonary toxicity caused by engineered nanomaterials (ENMs); tiny particles or fibers designed at the atomic scale that are increasingly used in a variety of consumer products. Of particular interest is determining the toxic potential of ENMs in susceptible populations and individuals with pre-existing diseases, especially asthma.
