Bio

Dr. Daniel Sullivan obtained his undergraduate degree in Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Alabama in 2009. He attended medical school at the University of Alabama, where he graduated in 2014, and studied a retinoid modulator of leukotriene A4 hydrolase activity with the goal of inhibiting neutrophilic inflammation in COPD during a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Medical Research Fellowship. He moved to Dallas to complete his Internal Medicine residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center where he examined the role of donor specific antibodies in lung transplant recipients and their contribution to bronchiolitis obliterans and survival. He enjoys ultimate frisbee, bouldering, cooking and gardening and has specific interests in immunology and inflammation.

Research Interests

Dr. Sullivan's past research included identifying novel genes of the fission yeast, S. pombe, and determining their functions and metabolic pathways as they relate to the cell cycle of the organism.  He also conducted experiments on sputum samples from a large cohort of COPD patients collected as a part of the ECLIPSE Study with Dr. Blalock.  He continued to work with the Blalock lab and worked to determine if mesna, a compound used to deactivate the reactive aldehyde, acrolein, could protect the enzyme, leukotriene A4 hydrolase, from inactivation by cigarette smoke.
