    Dr. Diana H. Yu is an Interventional Pulmonologist, Critical Care Medicine Intensivist, and Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, Allergy, and Sleep Medicine.

    She is the Program Director of the UCSF Interventional Pulmonology Fellowship Program. She previously served as the Director of Interventional Pulmonology (IP) Research and Associate Program Director of IP Fellowship at the Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California. She was also on the faculty at the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine at the Stanford University of Medicine.

    She completed her Interventional Pulmonology Fellowship training at the Johns Hopkins University of Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at the University of California Los Angeles, David Geffen School of Medicine, and Internal Medicine Residency at the University of California Irvine School of Medicine.

    Her areas of clinical expertise include minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopic and pleural procedures, complex pleural diseases, and lung transplant airway complications. She has sub-specialty training in rigid bronchoscopy, tumor ablative therapies (argon plasma coagulation, laser therapy, electrocautery, and cryotherapy), tracheal/bronchial stent placement, airway balloon dilation, percutaneous tracheostomy, endobronchial valve insertion, radial/linear endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy, indwelling pleural catheter placement, thoracostomy tube insertion, medical thoracoscopy, and whole lung lavage.

    Her research interests include clinical research studies evaluating non-invasive bronchoscopic approach to treating chronic bronchitis and lung cancer, and translational research to elucidate the mechanism of post-transplant bronchial stenosis and vasculitis-associated tracheobronchial stenosis.

    She is a member of the American Thoracic Society, American College of Chest Physicians, American Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology, and Association of Interventional Pulmonology Program Directors.
