Welcome to the Division of Pediatric Allergy, Immunology, and Pulmonary Medicine

Our Division is focused on excellence in clinical care, education, research, quality improvement, and advocacy related to a broad range of diseases in the diverse fields of pediatric allergy, immunology, and pulmonary medicine.

Our clinical expertise spans multiple areas that include:


Pulmonary Medicine

  • Allergic rhinitis
  • Asthma
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Eczema and atopic dermatitis
  • Eosinophilic esophagitis
  • Food allergies
  • Immunodeficiency, in the Comprehensive Hematology, Immunology, and Infectious Disease Program (CHIIP)
  • Medication/drug allergy
  • Urticaria 
  • Aerodigestive disorders, including the Complex Aerodigestive Evaluation Team (CADET)
  • Asthma
  • Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia
  • Pulmonary Vascular Disease, including Pulmonary Hypertension
  • Neuromuscular/Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
  • Rare Lung Disease
  • Sleep Disorders

Our clinical programs have received national recognition, including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Quality Award at our most recent CF Program accreditation renewal in 2018. Our Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD) Center is accredited through the PCD Foundation Clinical and Research Centers Network, and our Pulmonary Hypertension Program is one of only eight pediatric programs in the nation accredited as a Pulmonary Hypertension Comprehensive Care Center.

Our research mission parallels areas of clinical expertise, and our division faculty are collaborators on numerous national and international studies, including clinical trials, to facilitate clinical research in focuses across their fields of study. Eric Austin, MD, MSCI and Christian Rosas-Salazar, MD, MPH are dedicated physician-scientists leading vibrant translational research programs. Leonard Bacharier, MD is a physician-scientist who is an international expert in childhood asthma. Allison Norton, MD does clinical research on pediatric drug allergy and antibiotic allergy de-labeling. Drs. Rachel Robison and Stacy Dorris engage in food allergy research, including clinical trials, with other centers from across the country through our participation in Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) as a Center of Excellence. Yasmin Khan, MD is a member of the State Genetic Advisory Board and serves as medical advisor for issues related to newborn screening for immunodeficiency. She also works in the Comprehensive Hematology, Immunology, and Infectious Diseases Program (CHIIP), a multidisciplinary clinic that has partnered with the Human Immunology Discovery Initiative (HIDI) through the Vanderbilt Center for Immunology to help better understand the immunology of these complex disorders. Paul Moore, MD oversees research efforts related to child born prematurely with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD).

Our division is dedicated to training the next generation of clinicians and physician-scientists, and our academic program is designed to provide an all-encompassing clinical experience in pediatric pulmonology. Additionally, the Allergy-Immunology Fellowship Program is sponsored in the Department of Medicine and welcomes pediatric residents interested in fellowship training.

Thanks for your interest, and I invite you to learn more about the division through our website and to contact us with questions and interest in collaboration.
