A Center of Biomedical Research Excellence


The Vermont Lung Center (VLC), a Program on Lung Biology and Disease, has been in existence at the UVM College of Medicine since 1972. It has had a rich and productive past that has had a significant impact nationally. The current program centers around a COBRE award from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the NIH. The keystone to the VLC program is translational research. The goals of the VLC are to investigate the mechanisms of lung biology and disease, and to train and retain outstanding translational scientists at UVM. Our key product is excellence.

The purpose of the Institutional Development Award (IDeA) Program is to foster health-related research and increase the competitiveness of investigators at institutions located in states with historically low total funding  from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 

Research Training

Research Training

The VLC has been established as a regional focal point for education. A series of education programs are being offered that target a varied audience including patients, parents/guardians of patients, health care professionals, the academic community, and the general public.

Clinical Trials

Care of patients with lung disease presents a number of unique problems for optimal healthcare delivery, particularly in the rural setting of Vermont. Our goal is to establish the Lung Center as the regional point of expertise, referral and quality patient care.
