Clinical research

Our center is one of the largest sarcoidosis in the nation and worldwide treating patient with sarcoidosis. therefore, our center is well positioned to perform mechanistic studies as well as to perform phenotyping and clinical based studies. 
As a pulmonary critical care physician taking care of patients with COVID-19 in the ICU, I am interested to identify factors modulating disease outcome.
