About Our Research

Research efforts within the Pediatric Pulmonology division include projects involving: asthma, primary ciliary dyskinesia, primary immunodeficiency, lung disease of prematurity, interstitial lung disease, environmental exposures to pollutants and their impact on airways, and many more.  In addition, the division has a long-standing interest in CF related research that spans high priority areas from basic science to translational medicine and conduct of clinical trials for new therapies. Our research has always been closely aligned with our clinical care centers and our faculty collaborate with colleagues across campus, including researchers working throughout the School of Medicine, the Marsico Lung Institute, the Gillings School of Global Public Health, and the Center for Environmental Medicine, Asthma and Lung Biology.
