Professional Statement

I am a Pulmonary and Critical Care physician with expertise in airway diseases including asthma and COPD. I oversee the Airways Clinical Research Center at Baylor which includes a large research team of co-investigators and coordinators. Our team is involved in single-center and multi-center collaborative clinical trials. Our funding includes the American Lung Association, the NIH as well as industry. My research is primarily focused on airway pharmacology and is based on translating findings from lab to the clinic with the hope to develop new treatments. In addition to my research activities, I am the Director of the Asthma and COPD Clinic at the Smith Clinic/ Ben Taub Hospital. My ultimate goal is to improve the outcome of patients with asthma and COPD not only by providing state of the art evidence-based care, but by developing and testing new interventions to eliminate burden of these diseases.
