Naveen Gupta Naveen was born in Boston, Massachusetts, grew up in Ohio, and obtained his undergraduate degree from Stanford University.  He subsequently went to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor for his MD and internal medicine training.  Naveen returned to the Bay Area for his pulmonary and critical care fellowship at UC-San Francisco, where he did his post-doctoral research training with Dr. Michael Matthay studying the therapeutic effects of bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in experimental lung injury models.  Naveen was most recently at The Scripps Research Institute and Scripps Clinic where he studied the role of protease activated receptors (PARs) and coagulation based serine proteases on MSC therapeutic activity. 

Here in the Nizet Lab, Naveen is continuing his work on PARs and MSC function as well as the general role of PARs in experimental sepsis.  Furthermore, he will investigate the role of HIF-1alpha on MSC therapeutic activity.

Naveen is also clinically active in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at UCSD where he attends in the intensive care unit and pulmonary consult service.
