Academic Interests

Dr. McConville, working with Dr. Julian Solway, has focused on the role of serum response factor’s cytoplasmic-nuclear translocation in the accumulation of smooth muscle specific proteins. This work, carried out in a cell culture system, could have implications for parallel mechanisms that may operate during airway smooth muscle hypertrophy that occurs in asthma. Additionally, Dr. McConville is designing clinical studies to investigate the interaction between obesity and asthma.

Clinical Interests

Obstructive lung disease (asthma, COPD) and obesity, pulmonary hypertension.
