• Innovative Leader in Asthma Research

  • Asthma Research at Cincinnati Children's

    The Division of Asthma Research aims to accelerate the bidirectional flow of knowledge between the clinical beside and research settings. We translate clinical challenges in asthma into well-designed research studies that integrate the collective expertise of individuals in the division and across Cincinnati Children's and take advantage of transdisciplinary approaches that span the use of human cohorts, animal models, in vitro and ex vivo models, and innovative methodologies. We have brought together physician scientists, basic scientists, clinical researchers, epidemiologists, exposure experts, geneticists and epigeneticists who work together on many aspects of asthma research.

    Our Mission

    To improve the health of children with asthma through a combination of clinically relevant research designed to delineate the mechanisms underlying asthma and the biologic basis for individual variations in asthma presentation, treatment response, and outcome.


    Top-notch clinical care requires a top-notch research base is the basic principal that guides the Division of Asthma at Cincinnati Children’s. The central goal is to contribute to new standards for clinical care through novel scientific discoveries and cutting edge research. We also strive to develop new treatment strategies and management paradigms based on research findings, which can be systematically evaluated in investigator initiated clinical trials and through our involvement in national networks.
