Clinical research at National Jewish Health has led to many important scientific discoveries, including:
- The first effective drug therapy for tuberculosis
- Treatments for allergies and asthma
- A better understanding of how our bodies fight viruses, bacteria and cancer
What We Study and Where
National Jewish Health is located in Denver, Colorado. Most of our clinical research is conducted at our Denver location, but we also participate in medical research studies that are offered at other national centers.
Generally, we study allergy, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, eczema, food allergies, heart, idiopathic lung disease (ILD), lung cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and sleep conditions.
Our research program started in 1919 and includes groundbreaking discoveries for tuberculosis, asthma, allergies and pulmonary fibrosis. Integrating our research and clinical efforts gives our patients access to the latest medical advances.
