Division of Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Medicine
About our Work
UNC’s Division of Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Medicine is composed of a team of clinicians, scientists, and scholars who are dedicated to advancing knowledge of lung disease and critical illness and improving the lives of patients with serious lung disease and those who are critically ill through exceptional, multi-disciplinary clinical programs; cutting edge research; and innovative education.
Philanthropy plays a critical role in supporting the activities of the Division of Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Medicine. Gifts from alumni, patients, and friends help us train tomorrow’s physician-scientists, make advances in the diagnosis and treatment of lung disease and critical illness through research, and achieve the best possible outcome for patients.
Support the Division of Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Medicine
The Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Medicine Excellence Fund provides one of the most important sources of revenue to the Division – gifts that are unrestricted. Unrestricted gifts are among the most valuable because they allow the Division Chief to allocate funds wherever the need is greatest, and to take advantage of unique opportunities as they arise.
The Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Fellowship Training Fund supports activities of the fellowship program, which prepares trainees for top academic and clinical positions by providing a strong foundation in patient care, research, and teaching. The Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Fellowship Training Fund allows fellows to pursue research and leadership opportunities at national conferences and seminars and supports visiting lecturers from across the country.
The Cystic Fibrosis and Pulmonary Disease Research Fund supports clinical and basic research endeavors within the Division. Gifts from this fund are used to support clinical trial infrastructure, core equipment, and other research expenses not supported by other sources of funding.
