Vision

Asthma is a chronic disease affecting 25 millions people, including 6 million children. Our vision is to advance the field of asthma for specific subgroups with novel therapies at the individual level and with specific approaches at the system level.

Mission

We seek to define the drivers of asthma, develop therapies and customized approaches targeting lifestyle and behavioral factors absent from current asthma guidelines. Our specific focus will be on obese asthma patients who are prone to more severe, worse outcomes and are at an increased risk of hospitalization and a lower quality of life. 

 

Asthma Research and Precision Medicine

Questions we're asking that inform us on how to best care for patients include:

Targeted Therapies

Can we define and develop targeted therapies for obese asthma subgroups?

Improve Adherence

Which innovation strategies can be applied to improve adherence to asthma therapy?

Personalized Approach

Do personalized approaches for environmental modifications reduce asthma morbidity and potentially prevent disease?

Clinical Trials

A pulmonologist performs research with a patient.

An important part of our mission is to advance state-of-the-art patient care through research. Biomedical research distinguishes an academic medical center from other hospitals, and the Division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine is further distinguished by the breadth and depth of our research program.
