National Jewish and Children's Hospital Colorado faculty members participate in both clinical and basic research programs. Despite the current funding climate, the number of grants has increased from the NIH, the EPA, other federal agencies, and the pharmaceutical industry. Faculty members have played major roles in NIH-funded multicenter studies evaluating asthma and eczema therapies. The major programs in asthma, inflammation, signal transduction, and psychosocial problems in chronic illness have been very successful at National Jewish. For thirteen consecutive years, National Jewish has been ranked the #1 respiratory hospital in America by U.S. News & World Report.
