Description of Clinical Expertise

Dr. Mangalmurti serves as an attending physician for the Medical Intensive Care Unit and the Procedure and Resuscitation Service at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Mangalmurti’s clinical interests include acute lung injury and the management of the critically ill patient.

Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Mangalmurti’s research interests include lung inflammation, erythrocyte-endothelial interactions and the role of red cell transfusions in altering the lung inflammatory response to injury. She is interested in how the formation of novel red cell antigens during erythrocyte storage can alter cell-cell interactions and augment lung injury in vivo. The primary focus of the lab has been examining the role of the Receptor for Advanced Glycation End-Products (RAGE),a multi-ligand receptor that is highly expressed in the lung and may perpetuate lung inflammation following transfusion. Dr. Mangalmurti’s research seeks to advance our understanding of how the red cell “storage lesion” may adversely affect susceptible transfusion recipients.
