Professional Summary:

As chief of the division of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine, I oversee clinical, teaching, research and administrative tasks related to the evaluation and treatment of adult patients with lung diseases and sleep disorders as well as critically ill patients. My practice is primarily located at the VA Medical Center (VA) in Buffalo; however, members of my division provide care at sites throughout Buffalo, including the UBMD clinic at Dent Tower, UBMD Sleep Center and other UB-affiliated hospitals.

I also conduct research on one of the most common lung diseases: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, and lung infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia. Interestingly, patients with COPD become more prone to lung infection, and understanding why and how this happens is my main research interest. In addition to bench research in this field, I am also working to develop better ways to prevent and treat these infections by leading and participating in several clinical research studies in this field that are open to both veterans and the general public. I lead a multidisciplinary research team based at the VA that includes pulmonary and infectious disease physicians, post-doctoral scientists, nurse coordinators and research assistants. Through mentored research programs, our laboratories train undergraduate and graduate students, residents and fellows.

I am active in several professional organizations and have served as a consultant on the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) guidelines.
