Asthma is the most common childhood chronic disease in Ohio, resulting in nearly 3,000 emergency room visits to Cincinnati Children’s last year. Improvement in the management of asthma is critical, especially in Greater Cincinnati, where air pollution is a consistent concern and high local allergen levels mean the region’s children with asthma need effective, cutting-edge treatment.
The Division of Asthma Research is dedicated to improving the health of children with asthma in Cincinnati and across the nation. Our research efforts investigate how asthma and other allergic diseases, such as environmental allergies and eczema, develop in early childhood. We also study the influence of the environment on disease outcomes and why asthma attacks occur. The division uses basic, translational and clinical approaches to research, and our team includes a wide range of specialists: physicians, basic laboratory scientists and trainees, an environmental health scientist, epidemiologists, clinical research coordinators, a computer application / database specialist and a quantitative geneticist. The Division of Asthma Research is currently supported by a four-year grant from the Kindervelt Organization.
