DENVER — Jane Gross, M.D., Ph.D.
, has joined the nationally recognized pediatric pulmonary faculty at National Jewish Health for Kids

Dr. Gross is looking forward to caring for pediatric patients with lung disease in the pulmonary medicine clinic. In addition, she is developing a Young Adult Cystic Fibrosis Clinic for patients with cystic fibrosis transitioning from pediatric to adult care. Furthermore, Dr. Gross will be developing research in an original epidemiological nontuberculous mycobacteria investigation tool called Healthcare Associated Links in Transmission of Nontuberculous Mycobacteria in Patients with Cystic Fibrosis (HALT NTM). The HALT NTM study will serve to provide a stepwise process for epidemiological investigation of health care associated transmission of nontuberculous mycobacteria among patients with cystic fibrosis identified with highly similar strains of bacteria. This research will compliment ongoing work through the Colorado Cystic Fibrosis Research and Development Program.
