Dr. Gold's main research focus is investigating the role of costimulatory molecules in the innate immune response during polymicrobial sepsis. The lab has previously described an essential role for the costimualtory receptor, CD40, in controlling inflammation in murine polymicrobial sepsis. Currently, the lab will be focusing on the effect of simultaneous inhibition of CD40 and CD80/86 in murine polymicrobial sepsis. This will be done in concert with human trials characterizing the expression profiles of costimualtory receptor and their soluble ligands in humans with sepsis. Clinically, aside from the treatment of sepsis, Dr. Gold is extremely interested in new protocols for the management of alcohol withdrawal and delirium tremens in the ICU.
