Brian O'Connor, PhD

National Jewish Health is leading the future of personalized medicine through its research and treatment of respiratory, immune, cardiac and related diseases. Dr. O’Connor’s work in the Center for Genes, Environment and Health is focused on understanding how the immune system deals with disease, how the interplay between genes and the environment affects the human body, and why individuals with the same disease have very different results to treatment.

Dr. O’Connor’s work has been published in a number of medical journals including The Journal of Immunology and The Journal of Experimental Medicine.
