Dr. Chupp is Professor of Internal Medicine (Pulmonary) and Director of the Yale Center for Asthma and Airways Disease (YCAAD). YCAAD research focuses on understanding the mediators and mechanisms underlying the development of asthma and other airway diseases. Its goals are to understand the pathogenesis of asthma, develop novel clinical tests to enhance treatment, and ultimately develop novel treatments and potential cures. Dr. Chupp was part of a recent NHLBI strategic planning group for asthma research that recommended an enhanced focus on implementation research to improve adherence to practice guidelines and mitigate the effects of disparities in asthma prevalence and treatment.
