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.
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.
