At National Jewish Health, we study allergy, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, eczema, food allergies, heart, idiopathic lung disease (ILD), lung cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and sleep conditions. Most of our clinical research is conducted at our Denver location, but we also participate in medical research studies that are offered at other national centers.

Our research program in Denver, Colorado started in 1919 and includes groundbreaking discoveries for tuberculosis, asthma, allergies and pulmonary fibrosis. Integrating our research and clinical efforts gives our patients access to the latest medical advances.

Our clinical research has led to many important scientific discoveries, including:
  • The first effective drug therapy for tuberculosis
  • Treatments for allergies and asthma
  • A better understanding of how our bodies fight viruses, bacteria and cancer
