Dr. Sadikot’s research has focused on defining lung immune response and mechanism of lung injury. In particular her research is focused on defining the role of lipid mediators and superimmunoglobulin receptor TREM-1 in macrophages in resistant infections. Her clinical research focus is bronchiectasis and infections including TB, NTM and P. aeruginosa. More recently she has also focused on developing novel nanomedicine approaches to modulate lung immune response. She has published extensively on these topics in high impact peer reviewed journals and book chapters. She serves on the editorial board of Clinical Respiratory Medicine, Biomedical Research International and Annals of ATS.
