Pediatric Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine Research

The research programs in the Division of Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine reflect the broad range of interests of the group. Researchers have participated in the Wisconsin Cystic Fibrosis Newborn Screening Project since 1985. Dr. Hara Levy has funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for her genetic and genomic investigation of cystic fibrosis (CF). In the sleep program, investigators have looked at mechanisms of upper airway obstruction in children with obstructive sleep apnea and management of upper airway obstruction with mandibular distraction in children with Pierre-Robin syndrome. Finally, investigators are looking at the epidemiology of rural asthma.
