Dr. Calhoun studies mechanisms of asthma, with a special emphasis on steroid resistance and severe asthma. A focus of his research is dysfunction of the glucocorticoid receptor [GR] in asthma, from both pre- and post-translational mechanisms. In addition, he has interest in cytokine networking, and the regulation of inflammation and its consequences by anti-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-10. Using a murine model, Dr's Calhoun and Ameredes have demonstrated important interactions among inflammation, cytokine regulation, and gaseous signaling molecules. In addition, Dr Calhoun heads the UTMB site for the NIH-funded Asthma Clinical Research Network, a collaborative network of 8 funded centers nationwide that focuses on the key questions of asthma management.

The specialist I saw helped me much more that the local provider I have seen previously.Nov 06,2019
I've had two appointments and the largest concern for him was he couldn't understand the mechanism that would lead the Drs at the Mayo Clinic to prescribe Xolair nor did he believe it would be effective in stopping my sarcoidosis flair ups despite my telling him it had worked to do so.Sep 11,2019
