Dr. Downs is a nurse with extensive clinical experience in pulmonary and critical care medicine. He received his PhD from The University of Arizona where he studied the effects of cigarette smoke on alveolar epithelial type 1 cells and microvascular endothelial cells using a variety of cell culture models. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Emory University in the departments of pediatrics and physiology where he is continuing to investigate the physiological and toxicological effects of cigarette smoke exposure on the lung.
Downs research interest include elucidating the mechanisms through which inhaled toxicants, such as cigarette smoke, result in injury and disease. He is interested in sodium channel responses to toxicants in the alveolar epithelium, oxidative stress and oxidant signaling and cross-talk between the alveolar epithelium and microvascular endothelium.
