Chim is interested in the role of tissue factor proteins contained in extracellular vesicles released by mechanically compressed airway epithelial cells. Mechanical compression mimics the mechanical effect of the airway epithelium in the narrowed airway during asthma exacerbations. Thus, her goal is to identify the role of tissue factor protein in asthma pathogenesis.
