Joseph Cooley, DO, is a pulmonologist at National Jewish Health. Dr. Cooley is in the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine

Special Interests

My research and clinical interests center around interstitial lung disease. In the lab I investigate mechanisms of fibrosis and potential therapeutics for fibrotic lung diseases. Clinically, I specialize in fibrotic and non-fibrotic interstitial lung diseases, as well as general pulmonary and critical care medicine.
