Professor, UC Department of Pediatrics
Dr. Robert Wood, PhD, MD, is a pediatric pulmonary specialist, with particular interest in bronchoscopy. He has played a major role in the development of instrumentation and techniques for flexible bronchoscopy in pediatric patients. He is recognized as a teacher of endoscopic techniques, and has published many papers and book chapters on the subject. Additionally, he has extensive experience with clinical problems in pediatric pulmonary medicine, especially children with complex airway problems and cystic fibrosis.
Before coming to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Dr. Wood was on the faculty of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio (1976 to 1983), and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1983 to 1999).
PhD: Medical Physiology, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, 1968.
MD: Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, 1970.
Residency: Pediatrics, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC, 1970 to 1972.
Fellowship: Pediatric Metabolism, National Institute of Arthritis, Metabolism, and Digestive Diseases, Bethesda, MD, 1972 to 1974; Pediatric Pulmonology, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH; Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital, Cleveland, OH, 1974 to 1976.

Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis; cystic fibrosis; alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency; other rare lung disorders
Bruce Trapnell, MS, MD, received his medical degree from the University of Maryland in 1985, and completed a medical residency at The Ohio State University Hospitals and a fellowship in pulmonary medicine at the Clinical Center of the National Institutes of Health, where he then served as senior attending physician. Subsequently, he established the Division of Pulmonary and Virology Studies at Genetic Therapy, Inc., a subsidiary of Novartis, Pharma, serving as vice president before joining Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, where he is now full professor for the UC College of Medicine.
Dr. Trapnell has conducted lung disease research since his training and has been continuously funded by the NIH since 2001, shortly after his arrival in Cincinnati. He has published over 90 original articles and has trained more than 16 post-doctoral fellows. Dr. Trapnell’s research interests are focused to the pathogenesis and therapy of rare lung diseases and mechanisms by which GM-CSF regulates innate immunity and lung host defense.
Dr. Trapnell is director of Cincinnati’s Cystic Fibrosis Therapeutics Development Network Center, assistant director of the Adult Cystic Fibrosis Care Center, director of the Rare Lung Diseases Clinical Research Consortium, scientific director of the Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis Foundation. Dr. Trapnell is the past scientific director of the Alpha-1 Foundation, for which he organized and directed the grant program for eight years.
