Research


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.

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 our clinical trials or if there are any other questions pertaining to pulmonary clinical trials at OSU.

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.

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.

Sign up for Research!  ResearchMatch is a new internet based participant recruitment tool that was created through the collaboration of institutions involved with the NIH's Clinical and Translational Science Award program (CTSA Consortium).  Ohio State University is one of the centers across the country who were chosen to participate in this consortium.  ResearchMatch aims to ‘match’ two groups of people: ResearchMatch Volunteers (individuals who wish to learn about studies that might be of interest to them) with ResearchMatch Researchers (researchers who register their study through this tool).
