Special Interests

I have a unique background in both basic science and clinical research, which has informed my interest in clinical medicine. My past basic science research includes asthma, airway hyperresponsiveness, cystic fibrosis, and lung cancer. My past clinical research includes COPD and interstitial lung disease (ILD). Presently, I am interested in how research translates into personalized medicine. My clinical focus is mainly ILD, but I also see general pulmonary medicine patients, as needed.

Cori was awesome in getting me liquid oxygen!

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2023
Cori Fratelli is wonderful. Very good at explaining and making sure I understand. She is empathetic, kind and looks at me when she's speaking, not just at the computer screen. These are true gifts for a nervous patient. I feel she has my health and peace of mind foremost in her care. Dr. Toribara commented to me today how much he values her and his work with her and her patients. High praise from a colleague is reassuring to say the least!
