Clinical trials have provided researchers a deeper understanding of cystic fibrosis and other respiratory diseases and has led to important medical developments. The Division of Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine collaborates with other divisions and research programs at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and participates in national and international initiatives to improve the care of children with respiratory diseases and sleep disorders.
