The Lung Center Leadership

Brigham and Women’s Hospital has long been renowned for its exceptional pulmonary medicine and thoracic surgical care, research and teaching. We are pleased to announce the start of a new chapter in lung services, with the formal launch of The Lung Center—BWH’s newest Center of Excellence—and the Lung Research Center, part of the Brigham Research Institute.

Together, the centers will enable us to provide the highest level of personalized care by bringing the latest advances in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of lung diseases directly to our patients.

The Lung Center is focused on our patients, and is structured to enhance communication and teamwork, facilitate collaboration between departments and services and enhance our existing areas of strength. We look forward to watching The Lung Center harness the entrepreneurial spirit of many staff and disciplines to further improve the patient care experience within BWH and in conjunction with our colleagues at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Under the leadership of Raphael Bueno, MD, chief of the Division of Thoracic Surgery, and Bruce Levy, MD, chief of the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, supported by a multidisciplinary organizing committee, the center is poised to lead us into the next generation of advances in pulmonary and thoracic care.

The Lung Research Center will connect BWH’s outstanding researchers in lung health and disease to accelerate discoveries and quickly bring them to the bedside. Drs. Bueno and Levy, along with Ed Silverman, MD, PhD, chief of the Channing Division of Network Medicine, will co-direct the research center’s efforts to conduct scientific research that helps us better understand, treat and prevent lung disease.
