Chintan Gandhi, MBBS, a board certified neonatologist, joined Penn State College of Medicine as assistant professor of pediatrics after finishing a neonatal-perinatal medicine fellowship at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich. During fellowship, Dr. Gandhi studied the role of Angiotensin Converting Enzyme-2 in meconium aspiration syndrome using human alveolar A-549 cells. Currently, his laboratory is interested in studying the surfactant protein A (SP-A) gene-mediated miRNA modulation in alveolar type II cells and alveolar macrophages and, specifically, the regulation and functional differences of human SP-A variants under various noxious stimuli and oxidative stress. He is interested in innate immunity and lung injury and inflammation, as well as genetic susceptibility of individuals for pulmonary diseases such as respiratory distress syndrome, bronchopulmonary dysplasia and respiratory syncytial virus.
