Pulmonary Immunology

Pulmonary Immunology Research has deep roots at UCSF, replete with past successes and with ongoing broad strengths in basic, translational and clinical investigation involving numerous members of the faculty of the Pulmonary, Critical Care, Allergy and Sleep Medicine Divisions at UCSF’s major campuses. The investigators in these Divisions benefit from deep ties with immunology-focused investigators in other clinical and basic science Divisions and Departments, including Infectious Diseases, Rheumatology, Surgery, Anatomy, Pathology, Microbiology/Immunology, and Biochemistry/Biophysics. Several of the Division’s investigators connect to Immunology PhD Programs as part of UCSF’s Biomedical Sciences (BMS) graduate program. The historically large bequest leading to founding of the Nina Ireland Lung Disease Program (NILDP) facilitated recent expansion of immunological research activities in theme areas of Lung Transplantation, Interstitial Lung Disease, and Global Health. Active research activities in Pulmonary Immunology include:
