My research focuses on assessing predictors of survival in patients with cystic fibrosis and generating mathmatical models to predict survival in these patients. I am also involved in studying the changes of quality of life of patients with cystic fibrosis through time and integrating this information into the decision of these patients to pursue lung transplantation. Additional areas of interest have included the long-term mechanical ventilation outside of the intensive care unit and the epidemiology of acute respiratory distress syndrome. In addition to work in pulmonary and critical care epidemiology, I am the Associate Medical Director of the Cystic Fibrosis Therapeutics Development Network, a clinical trials network involving academic medical centers across the nation evaluating new and existing therapies for the treatment of patients with cystic fibrosis.
