Research is an essential component of the educational process for training pulmonary-critical care medicine residents. Because we recognize that not all residents are suited for careers in basic research, we provide a research experience that is adapted to the needs and skills of the individual. Research projects are integrated over the 3 years with elective time available for data analysis and writing.

A broad program is available to the fellows which include basic mechanisms of disease at the cellular and molecular level as well as clinical studies for evaluating mechanisms and therapies. Diseases studied include chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency, bronchiectasis, pulmonary hypertension and asthma. Programs also exist in the development of biomarkers for lung disease and pulmonary hypertension with a special focus on COPD. Mentors guide fellows through the process for their research project. Resources for research include IRB guidance, and availability of statistical support. Fellows receive funds to present their work at national and local conferences, including ACCP and ATS.
