Research

Dr. Bogatkevich’s research interests focus on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms of pulmonary fibrosis in scleroderma patients. Studying thrombin and thrombin-induced signaling molecules in scleroderma lung disease. Defining mechanisms by which thrombin regulates C/EBP homologous protein (CHOP) in lung fibroblasts and alveolar epithelial cells and to determine the role of CHOP in pulmonary fibrosis. Examining the role of IQ motif containing GTPase activating protein (IQGAP1) in scleroderma pulmonary fibrosis. Understanding the role of genome in SSc-ILD.
