Center for Excellence in Pulmonary Biology

About the Center of Excellence

The Center for Excellence in Pulmonary Biology unites three major programs -- Pulmonary Medicine, Cystic Fibrosis and Asthma -- to create a multidisciplinary synergy that takes advantage of Stanford's world-class expertise in biology, chemistry and other fields. This collaborative research effort brings a diverse range of experimental techniques, from 3-D medical imaging to comparative genetics, under one umbrella. The Center is committed to broaden its strong base of general pediatric pulmonary medicine and to enhance its ongoing interdisciplinary collaborations. More »
