About us


Our goals:


Elucidating the biology of healthy lungs.

Discovering mechanisms responsible for pulmonary disease.

Translating basic biology to clinical intervention.

Determining clinical efficacy.

Who we are:

We are a multidisciplinary group of investigators combining basic, translational, and clinical research to study lung biology and pulmonary disease.  We train PhD graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and MD students, residents, and clinical fellows.  The Pulmonary Center was established at BU in 1982 by Dr. Gordon Snider, and it was led by Dr. Jerome Brody from 1986 to 2009.  In 2009, Dr. Joseph Mizgerd became Director.  We are enormously proud of the historic achievements of BU Pulmonary, and excited by the current accomplishments of Pulmonary Center researchers.  Pulmonary discoveries are highlighted in our seminar series, at which all are welcome.  More information is also available on related web pages.  Together, we are working towards a healthier world where patients breathe easier.  Thank you for visiting.
