Personalize our approach to diagnosis and treatment and potentially change the way we manage patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with the ultimate goal of improving clinical outcomes and supporting ongoing discovery.
Better understand COPD characteristics and health outcomes to more effectively manage and improve the care of individuals living with COPD.
Questions we're asking that inform us on how to best care for patients include:
Are there specific projects or pragmatic clinical trials we can drive to improve health and/or reduce costs for COPD patients?
Can novel COPD subgroups with distinct clinical trajectories, biological underpinnings, or poor outcomes be identified through this research?
Can we build a comprehensive research program that provides for integration and evaluation of emerging therapies into our clinical treatment centers?
Our clinical mission is to provide state-of-the-art patient care of the highest quality and compassion. We fulfill this mission for our patients across the spectrum of illness, from outpatients to the critically ill, whose health challenges inspire our research efforts and whose experiences serve as our classroom.

We are a Center dedicated to pulmonary health and impacting lung-related health and health disparities through research, community engagement, and advocacy. Our Mission is to lead the way in the research of lung disease and how environmental influences affect pulmonary health. By focusing on quality research and transparent scientific findings, we strive to engage the community through education efforts.
