Web Waring Center
The Webb-Waring Center has a long
tradition. Webb-Waring is historically
tied to the Colorado and world research community for the better part of a
century. Originally founded by Dr. Gerald B. Webb and Dr. James J. Waring
in 1924 for the study of tuberculosis, Webb-Waring focuses on innovative
medical research and education. Our research is advancing understanding and
improving the management of health and disease.
The Webb-Waring Center’s motivated staff and
investigators strive to maintain the highest standard of research
excellence and to provide a high level education that inspires and
prepares students for careers in biomedical research and medicine.
Webb-Waring investigators are recognized for
making the first clinical recognition of the Acute Respiratory Distress
Syndrome (ARDS) and developing a commonly used diagnostic test of lung function.
Currently, Webb-Waring Center investigators are
actively developing new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for ARDS, type 1
and type 2 diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS), fatty liver, atherosclerosis,
traumatic brain injury (TBI), age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and
The Webb-Waring Center relocated
approximately four years ago to the new comprehensive Anschutz Medical Campus
of the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Health Sciences Center in
Aurora, Colorado. The Webb-Waring Center
complex is located on the south end of the third floor of the School of Pharmacy.
