Research Interests

My research is focused on the basic cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the lung’s response to injury and predisposition to fibroproliferation.

I expected something different from my visit. But I do not find Dr. Cosgrove at fault for that. Basically I learned there is nothing that can be done for me at this time which is fine because apparently I am not as sick as I could be. That's good. However I am concerned for my future and counting years I may have left.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
During the visit, I had stomach issues that caused me to have to leave the appointment several times. Dr. Cosgrove was very patient and kind with me knowing that this was a major frustration to both of us.

I am impressed with the professionalism & friendliness of the whole hospital.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2016
Dr. Cosgrove is an excellent Doctor. He never makes me feel rushed or unimportant, he takes his time and listens to my concerns and is respectful of my time and what I have to say. Many doctors have mentioned my condition is a "challenging case", and so I have a lot of fears and anxiety related to it, and I appreciate how Dr. Cosgrove addresses each of my questions and fears with respect and never makes me feel embarrassed to ask about them. His compassion and understanding is greatly appreciated and I leave my appointments always feeling optimistic. Thank you Dr. Cosgrove for what you do!

Dr. Cosgrove has been an outstanding provider since I came to him four ears ago. He not only treats my ILD, but takes as much time as I need to treat my total wellbeing at each and every visit. He makes me feel like he's my friend, as well as my Doctor. I rely on him tremendously and goes above and beyond to provide outstanding medical care.
