King's research interests include pathogenesis, diagnosis and management of inflammatory and immunologic lung disease. He has co-authored eight books including the acclaimed reference book, "Interstitial Lung Disease," now in its fourth edition.

      King earned a medical degree at Harvard Medical School, followed by a residency at Emory University Affiliated Hospitals in Atlanta, Ga. and a pulmonary fellowship at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Institute of Medicine, National Academy of Sciences, Association of American Physicians, American Clinical and Climatological Association and Fleischner Society and is a master of the American College of Physicians and fellow he American College of Chest Physicians.
