Leading the Way in Pediatric Lung Disease Research
The Division of Pulmonary Medicine has research programs that span basic, translational, and clinical science. Our faculty are world-class experts in each category of pediatric lung disease, and we have a well-supported wet laboratory and clinical-trial infrastructure.
Our faculty focus on a broad spectrum of lung disease from more common disorders like asthma to rare lung diseases like interstitial lung diseases (ILD) and chronic lung disease associated with immunodeficiency or bone marrow transplantation.
Our goals are to build upon and expand basic-science research by capitalizing on leading-edge translational clinical research and to lead the field in education and training, while maintaining our strong culture of discovery, innovation, compassion, and clinical care.
Research By the Numbers
We have 27 faculty members (15 full-time research) who have been conducting groundbreaking research for more than 20 years. Their findings have been published in dozens of top journals and they present their work at national and international conferences yearly.
Our research would not be possible without robust funding, and we receive approximately $13 million of competitive research dollars per year from federal and privately held foundations.
