The Pulmonary Center includes the faculty of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Allergy Medicine as well as affiliates studying lung disease in other divisions of Medicine and thoughout the departments of Biochemistry, Microbiology, Pathology, and Physiology.
The core of the Pulmonary Center is a group of scientists dedicating their careers to fighting lung disease. These investigators share laboratory space, facilities, staff, and resources. They regularly teach each other, learn from each other, and work together, recognizing that these continuous interactions strengthen them to accomplish research and training that combats lung disease.
This core forms the hub of the Pulmonary Center, integrated with many spokes around BU. Formal and informal interactions facilitate the cross-fertilization of ideas and the pursuit of collaborative research elucidating lung biology and pulmonary disease.
