Vascular injury is a menacing element of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) pathogenesis. To better understand the role of vascular injury in COVID-19 ARDS, we used lung autopsy immunohistochemistry and blood proteomics from COVID-19 subjects at distinct timepoints in disease pathogenesis, including a hospitalized cohort at risk of ARDS development ("at risk", N=59), an intensive care unit cohort with ARDS ("ARDS", N=31), and a cohort recovering from ARDS ("recovery", N=12). COVID-19
more » ... S lung autopsy tissue revealed an association between vascular injury and platelet-rich microthrombi. This link guided the derivation of a protein signature in the at risk cohort characterized by lower expression of vascular proteins in subjects who died, an early signal of vascular limitation termed the maladaptive vascular response. These findings were replicated in COVID-19 ARDS subjects, as well as when bacterial and influenza ARDS patients (N=29) were considered, hinting at a common final pathway of vascular injury that is more disease (ARDS) then cause (COVID-19) specific, and may be related to vascular cell death. Among recovery subjects, our vascular signature identified patients with good functional recovery one year later. This vascular injury signature could be used to identify ARDS patients most likely to benefit from vascular targeted therapies.

Wetland processes are highly spatially and temporally heterogeneous, and managers lack models relating important wetland processes to specific combinations of biological communities, flooding, and soils. Wetlands in urban settings, while having the potential to deliver ecosystem services (nutrient removal) to urban areas, pose a particular challenge in linking ecosystem processes with their environmental drivers, because urban wetlands have been little studied, and each urban system has its own
more » ... unique set of altered conditions. These issues are especially true of wetlands that develop on brownfield sites, on highly modified soil materials. My research questions were the following: (1) Where and when do the highest rates of nitrate removal occur in urban brownfield wetlands, and what are the spatio-temporal dimensions of these high rates?; (2) What are the environmental drivers of nitrate removal rates (via denitrification) in urban brownfield wetlands?; and (3) How can the spatial and temporal dimensions of nitrate removal rates be modeled and predicted to aid in restoration and management at the watershed scale?. iii I utilized a combination of lab-and field-based studies to construct models designed to isolate and explain the relationship between environmental variables and soil denitrification in urban wetland environments. Whole-wetland denitrification potential was estimated through spatial interpolation of the variables mediating the highest rates of denitrification at the scale of a couple square meters. I also measured components of the nitrogen and hydrologic cycle in wetlands to construct budgets estimating the role of denitrification in removing nitrate under wet and dry conditions. My research shows that brownfield wetlands in northern New Jersey support active populations of denitrifying bacteria and are potential sinks for nitrate in urban landscapes. Rates of nitrate consumption in the soils equaled or exceeded the rate of nitrate loading, at least from the atmosphere. Soil structure and texture, water table levels, and landscape position appear to be primary determinants of whether brownfield soils are sinks for nitrate. Modifications to hydrology that promote (1) endogenous nitrate production, particularly in low-oxygen waterlogged areas, and (2) contact between stormwater and soils with high macroporosity may augment levels of nitrate removal from brownfield wetlands. iv Dedication This dissertation is dedicated to Dr. Joan G. Ehrenfeld, a phenomenal mentor and constant source of inspiration. I hope that this document would have made you proud. v Acknowledgements Words cannot express how grateful I am to have the amazing, generous people in my life that I call friends, family, colleagues, and mentors. I first and foremost wish to thank my advisors, Joan Ehrenfeld and Peter Groffman, for their endless assistance, patience, advice, and brilliance. I also would like to thank my committee members, Daniel Gimenez, Stuart Findlay, and Ming Xu, for all of their suggestions and many hours spent helping me complete this dissertation. Thanks especially to Daniel, who has always treated me like one of his own graduate students, and has allowed me to bug him at all hours of the day with inane questions and advice involving soil analysis. The many members of the Ehrenfeld Lab have served as phenomenal friends and colleagues these 6 years, and have helped me with practically every aspect of my dissertation. you have been the greatest academic family imaginable. Cara, thank you for carrying me through this last year; I couldn't have made it without you. I would also like to thank a number of staff and faculty members at Rutgers:
