The Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine is dedicated to gaining new knowledge about disease so we can improve the quality of life of our patients.

We have a growing program in clinical research and we are actively recruiting people to participate in one of our clinical trials. We have trials centered on both outpatient (clinic) and inpatient (ICU) locations. A brief synopsis of our active trials is available via the menu on the left hand side of this page.

Clinical Research

Clinical research not only generates new knowledge but also allows us to offer patients the opportunity to receive new cutting edge therapies and most importantly extensive one-on-one education.

Our patients have expressed a high degree of satisfaction after participating in one of our trials and cite the educational benefits as the best part of the experience.

Please contact us if you would like more information regarding any of the trials listed on the left hand menu or any other questions pertaining to pulmonary clinical trials at OSU.

Why should I become involved in a clinical trial?

One common question we receive is “Why should I become involved in a clinical trial?” The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has an excellent web page devoted to answering this question and which also lists clinical trials available across the country. We highly recommend you visit this site to learn more about the benefits of participating in clinical trials: NIH Clinical Trials.

Basic Science Research

We also have a robust basic science research program spanning several areas of cutting edge investigation. You can learn more about each of our basic science faculty’s current projects via the menu on the left hand side of this page.
