Office of Research Innovation

Welcome to the Office of Research Innovation

National Jewish Health has a long history of ground breaking scientific discovery including the IgE protein, combined chemotherapy for tuberculosis, identification of the T-cell Receptor, and novel diagnosis of food allergies.

Today, we lead with research and discovery that changes the way the world identifies mechanisms, diagnosis, and treatment of respiratory, cardiovascular, rheumatologic, autoimmune, inflammatory and immunologic diseases.

The Office of Research Innovation is part of Academic Affairs and is focused on improving research sustainability, invigorating research outreach, leveraging research assets, and catalyzing product development.

  • This year alone National Jewish Health researchers published more than 450 peer-reviewed scientific journal articles.
