Professor Horton’s research aims to understand the immunological dysregulation that promotes lung injury and fibrosis. Following earlier work in which she developed a novel vaccine-induced immunotherapy treatment for lung fibrosis, her research continues to discover novel metabolic treatments for both lung fibrosis and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). She has been the principal investigator or site PI in approximately 10 clinical trials of treatments for lung disease and has over 80 publications on pulmonary conditions including IPF, IPF cough, and lung fibrosis as well as respiratory infections such as influenza and COVID-19. Maureen Horton, M.D. is Professor of Medicine and Environmental Health Engineering at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD, Co-Director of the Interstitial Lung Disease Program in the department of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, and an attending physician at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Medical Intensive Care Unit.
