Biography

After graduating from Tufts University and the George Washington School of Medicine, Dr. Geoffrey Chupp completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the Tufts University School of Medicine and a Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at Boston University School of Medicine. In 1997 Dr. Chupp came to Yale in 1997 and developed the Yale Center for Asthma and Airways Disease. This multifaceted program is a multidisciplinary clinical program that focuses on the care of patients with severe as and other complicated airways diseases, a center for translational research in airways disease, and a center where patients can participate in cutting edge industry sponsored research trials. The success of YCAAD has recently been realized with the publications on novel observations on chitinases in patients with asthma recruited from this multidisciplinary center.
