The basic, translational and clinical research science groups of the Division of Pediatric Pulmonology, Allergy and Sleep Medicine and related laboratories within the Indiana University School of Medicine offer a robust and diverse wealth of research possibilities. During the first year, fellows begin a mentored research experience and assemble a Scholarship Oversight Committee. The fellow meets with his/ her committee at least once during the first year and then spends approximately 16 months of the final two years working on a supervised project. The research project chosen by the fellow must be relevant to pediatric pulmonary medicine and be a rigorous project that can be pursued in depth over the two-year period. Faculty from the Division of Pediatric Pulmonology’s current research interests include:

Lung growth, development and repairCystic fibrosis (translational/clinical)
AsthmaPulmonary Hypertension
Chronic lung disease in premature infantsAerodigestive QI
Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD)Specialized physiologic testing including infant lung function testing
Specimen Collection, Banking and DistributionLung Disorders in Sickle Cell Disease
Atopic dermatitisAllergic rhinitis, eosinophilic esophagitis, allergic asthma
Oral immunotherapySleep Disorders
Airway Microbiome in Infants

During training, motivated and eligible candidates are encouraged to participate in Indiana University School of Medicine programs offering Masters degrees in clinical research or public health. Fellows pursuing careers as physician scientists, researchers and future academic leaders are encouraged to apply for the Morris Green Physician Scientist Development Program.
