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.
