The Asthma and Airway Translational Research Unit (AATRU) at University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) is a dedicated unit of translational research faculty in adult and pediatric pulmonary and allergy, coordinators, recruiters, scientists and biostatisticians.

The AATRU focuses on understanding the origins of asthma, and how we can decrease asthma morbidity and mortality using translational methods and clinical trials.

We currently have more than 25 ongoing studies sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, American Lung Association and pharmaceutical industry. All of these studies have opportunities for students, residents, fellows and faculty to perform focused research in an area of interest. We welcome the participation of patients with lung disease to learn more about their disease and to participate in leading cutting-edge research.

Principal Investigator
