My main clinical interests are cystic fibrosis (CF) and lung transplantation. I developed and direct the University of Minnesota Adult CF Program and am Director of our CF Center. In addition to CF, I am interested in the management of other bronchiectatic lung disease including Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia. I am involved in the pre-transplant evaluation and post-transplant management of patients referred for lung transplantation for both CF and other end-stage lung disease. My involvement in lung transplantation has led me to develop expertise in interventional bronchoscopy for both transplant-related and non-transplant airway disease. I am experienced in balloon dilation, and stent placement. In the in-patient arena I mainly focus on CF and lung transplantation, but also participate in general pulmonary consultation and all aspects of intensive care management. In addition to my direct patient care responsibilities, I participate actively in continuous clinical quality improvement activities in the Adult CF Program.

Research Summary

I have served as site Primary Investigator for a number of phase II and III trials for new medications for CF patients, including VX-770 and Denfosol. I have participated as a co-investigator for numerous other phase I-III trials for new CF and transplant medications as well.I have also participated as a primary or co-investigator for a number of investigator-initiated clinical studies. I am an active participant in a number of collaborative studies at the University of MN CF Center, related to cystic fibrosis and lung transplantation.
