Dr. Collard is a clinical and translational researcher focused on patients and populations of patients with interstitial lung disease. Dr. Collard is currently conducting projects investigating: (1) acute exacerbations of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (acute events that cause significant worsening of disease for many patients); (2) predicting disease progression (3) factors contributing to patients’ symptoms of shortness of breath and ways to improve patients’ quality of life; (4) clinical trials of promising but unproven therapies for patients with interstitial lung disease.
