Our division has an active clinical and basic science research program focusing on the study of lung cancer and the study of Mycobacterium avium complex pulmonary infection. In collaboration with Janet Sawicki, PhD, a member of our faculty as well as the Deputy Director of the Lankenau Institute for Medical Research, we have received grant funding for these and other projects. Our Pulmonary/Critical Care faculty engage actively in various clinical research projects on COPD, pulmonary vascular disease, and critical care medicine. In addition, our Sleep Medicine faculty have ongoing research projects investigating various aspects of Sleep medicine. We have a research nurse coordinator on our staff who works actively with our faculty and fellows in the organization of research projects and data collection.
