NYU Langone’s Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine runs a diverse, active, and comprehensive research program.
We take a multidisciplinary approach to basic science and clinical research, collaborating closely with other NYU Langone divisions and departments and with investigators from around the world in the following research areas:
- asthma, airways, and the environment
- critical care and resuscitation
- pulmonary oncology
- World Trade Center
- lung microbiome and host immune response
- cystic fibrosis
- bronchiectasis and nontuberculous mycobacteria
- lung development, fibrosis, and signaling
- applied pulmonary physiology
- lung transplant
- interstitial lung disease
- 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
Our research portfolio includes epidemiological studies, clinical trials, translational research, and laboratory-based investigations. We receive much of our funding from the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense foundations, and private philanthropy.
A variety of academic publications publish our research findings, including the New England Journal of Medicine, Science Translational Medicine, Cell, Immunity, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, Chest, and Critical Care Medicine.
We are committed to education and scientific investigation. To that end, research training is an integral component in our fellowship programs. We also offer various pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine research conferences and seminars.
