Improving patient outcomes through research



The Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine is dedicated to gaining new knowledge about disease so we can improve the quality of life of our patients. We have a growing program in clinical research and we are actively recruiting people to participate in one of our clinical trials. We have trials centered on both outpatient (clinic) and inpatient (ICU) locations.

Clinical and Basic Science Research



Clinical research not only generates new knowledge but also allows us to offer patients the opportunity to receive new cutting edge therapies and most importantly, extensive one-on-one education. Our patients have expressed a high degree of satisfaction after participating in our trials and cite the educational benefits as the best part of the experience. We also have a robust basic science research program spanning several areas of cutting edge investigation.
Airways Disease Research

Airways Disease Research

Our Airway Disease Research Program centers on translational research in the following areas with the goals of improving the lives of patients with airway diseases and understanding the basic mechanisms of these diseases to further advance the efforts for a cure:
  • COPD
  • Asthma
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Bronchiolitis
  • Sarcoidosis
Our research includes studies on both the individual disease process and on underlying mechanisms they may have in common. We have a clinical research focus on promoting both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic disease interventions.
