Research & Clinical Interests
Research Interests: 

Eric D. Morrell, M.A., M.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine at the University of Washington.  Dr. Morrell’s research focuses on understanding the alveolar innate immune mechanisms that contribute to acute injury, repair, and clinical outcomes.  His work integrates a broad range of molecular and epidemiologic approaches.  Specifically, his work has identified novel alveolar macrophage phenotypes that are associated with key clinical outcomes using transcriptional and single-cell methods.  In addition to his translational research in ARDS, Dr. Morrell co-directs the University of Washington’s Lung Transplant Biorepository, serves on the Early Career Group at the American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology, and is a site PI for several multi-center observational and interventional studies in lung transplant, ARDS, and COVID-19.  Dr. Morrell’s clinical focus is critical care and lung transplant medicine.
