    Laura Koth received a B.S. degree from the University of California, Los Angeles in Biochemistry and an M.D. degree from Harvard Medical School in 1994. She completed her Internal Residency training at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts and her Pulmonary/Critical Care fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco. She joined the UCSF Pulmonary faculty in 2003.

    Her research activities focus on the immunologic mechanisms of lung inflammation and macrophage activation. Her clinical interest is Granulomatous Interstitial Lung Diseases and she launched the first research program focused on sarcoidosis in 2010.

    She currently serves as Principle Investigator for a number of studies and research cohorts.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
