Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine Research

Our team participates in collaborative research — both within Children's Mercy hospitals and clinics and in partnership with other organizations throughout the country. See our 2012 and 2011 research.

Faculty are attracted to an academic pediatric center such as Children's Mercy not only for its reputation of excellence in clinical care and education, but also for a career opportunity in academic medicine. Each of our faculty members has or is in the process of developing a focus or niche of clinical and or translational research.
