Dr. Grazia is board certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine, and Critical Care Medicine. He is a UNOS certification-eligible lung transplant physician. His clinical interests include lung transplantation, end-stage lung disease, and pulmonary vascular disease/right ventricular failure. He has a specific clinical research interest in the attenuation of acute and chronic lung and heart allograft rejection via immune-modulatory therapies, including the potential use of stem cell/progenitor cell therapy. In terms of basic science research, Dr. Grazia is focused primarily on understanding the interface between the donor vasculature and the host immune response as it relates to acute rejection and ultimately to its relationship to the development of maladaptive fibrosis (chronic rejection) in cardiothoracic solid organ transplantation. Dr. Grazia's lab works in close collaboration with Dr. Gill, Dr. Zamora, and Dr. Pietra. Dr. Grazia is currently funded by the NIH, AHA, and JDRF.
