In thisperiod, his major research interests were the role ofeicosanoids, leukotrienesandprostaglandins in the modulationofphagocytos is andmicrobicidal activity in alveolar macrophages challenged with IgG opsonizedtargets. Duringhis training, hewasawardedan American Lung Association Senior Post-doctoral Fellowship.
