Research Description

Dr. Eldredge is a physician-scientist at the Seattle Children's Center for Respiratory Biology and Therapeutics. Her primary research focus is in the pathogenesis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia, also known as chronic lung disease of prematurity. Specifically, she is working to understand the roles of monocytes and epithelial cells in the development of this inflammatory lung disease.
