The AIR Division has a robust research program including basic science projects, translational research, and clinical studies.  Our faculty also collaborate with investigators in multiple other departments within the medical center affording fellows quite diverse research opportunities.  Fellows receive protected time to pursue a project during their fellowship under the guidance of a mentor of their choice.  Fellows present their findings at national conferences and/or through journal publications. For more information on the Division’s research endeavors, visit our Research site.
