National Jewish Health is a leader in the treatment of respiratory, immunologic and related diseases. Yet throughout its history, it has aspired to be much more than a facility simply for the physical treatment of disease. In keeping with our philosophy of "Science Transforming Life," our clinical faculty not only provide the best care for their patients, but also they are very much involved in developing and evaluating new potential therapies.
The search for new medicines and therapies begins in the laboratory where scientists use a variety of model systems to understand how cells perform their normal function and how they interact and communicate with each other in normal and disease situations.
And with a focus on personalized medicine, our researchers are looking at environment-gene interaction and making strides in predicting, preventing, treating and tracking many diseases. Known for "translating" the lessons of basic science and applying them to human diseases, National Jewish Health attracts world-class researchers who conduct leading-edge scientific investigations.
