The University of Washington is one of the most highly funded academic institutions in the country and our faculty and fellows contribute to this success significantly each year by:

  • having a high annual average of published book chapters and articles in scientific journals
  • presenting abstracts at national and international conferences
  • participating as members of study sections for the NIH and other funding agencies
  • providing national leadership at the American Thoracic Society, the American College of Chest Physicians and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine

What Do We Do? 

Our research is immensely diverse and continually changing to remain at the cutting edge of science

To complement this, our research program also comprises five core areas of inquiry that form the basis of our work.
