The long-term objective of our laboratory is to understand the underlying molecular and genetic causes for chronic allergic airway inflammation or asthma to improve therapeutic approaches. The specific objective of this application is to dissect microRNA (miRNA)-dependent inflammatory pathways in dendritic cells (DCs) and CD4+ T cells that modulate murine allergic airway disease to fungal allergens. Asthma is a major rising global health threat that disproportionately affects combat veterans. We...
