Research

Faculty in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine within the Department of Medicine have expertise in several aspects of lung biology including lung injury and the alveolar epithelium, hypoxia, particulate matter, intermediate filaments, influenza, cell signaling, and cell metabolism. In addition, we have experts conducting translational and clinical research in areas such as pneumonia, airways disease (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Asthma), Adult Cystic Fibrosis, and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. Pulmonary faculty act as mentors to pre and post-doctoral fellows, who have access to cutting edge laboratories while learning new and innovative laboratory techniques and methods.

We have received an National Institute of Health (NIH) Program Project Grant (P60), an Institutional T-32 fellowship training grant, and numerous other grants from government, non-profit, and industry sources. Our faculty are currently involved in basic science and clinical investigation and have close collaborations with scientists throughout Northwestern, including the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology and the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
