Dr. Jason D. Christie is the Chief of the Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Division, Professor of Medicine in the Department of Medicine and Professor of Epidemiology in the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania. His career is focused on translational research studies of the risks, pathogenesis, treatment, and outcomes of acute lung injury in the transplant and non-transplant human populations.
His research integrates new knowledge generated from bench studies with epidemiology approaches in well-phenotyped, large human populations to generate new definitions of human syndromes, improved diagnostics and prognostics, and targeted therapy approaches in advanced lung diseases and critical illness. Clinically, Dr. Christie focuses on lung transplantation and critical care, and teaching has long been a focus of his career. He has previously been recognized with a Penn Pearls Teaching Award, and the Mayock-Fishman Teaching Award.
