The research faculty within the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine include physician-scientists, scientists, translational researchers, clinicians, and epidemiologists who work together to investigate diseases that affect the lungs. We maintain a number of federally funded research programs studying acute lung injury, asthma, cystic fibrosis, lung transplantation, interstitial lung disease, infectious diseases of the lung, sleep-disordered breathing, and chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD). Our researchers lead programs that reflect the depth and diversity of their research. Many hold appointments in other departments and centers within the University, including the Departments of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics, Epidemiology, Environmental Health Science, and the Institute of Genomic Medicine. We are committed to training future investigators through an NIH-funded T32 training grant in Lung Biology. Recent work from the Division has been published in leading medical and scientific journals, including The New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, Nature Medicine, The Lancet, and the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
