    I work in the Stanford ICU and am very involved in teaching residents and fellows about critical care.  I trained in genetics and genomics, did an MPH at Harvard School of Public Health, and now use genetics and genomics to improve our understanding of ARDS. My hope is that emerging genomic techniques will enable us to better phenotype ARDS and thus develop novel therapies.
