Research Interests

Dr. Mageto has a primary focus and expertise in interstitial lung disease and runs a multidisciplinary interstitial lung disease clinic on a weekly basis with colleagues from other divisions.  She also actively encourages fellows to see their interstitial lung disease patients in the clinic with faculty supervision.  She is a clinician educator/researcher involved in multiple idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis trials and has also collaborated with investigators form other centers in sarcoidosis related lung disease.  She is a PI on a number of IPF studies and is actively involved in the total care and management of these patients.

She also operates as a bio-informaticist for the hospital and is actively involved in working with the IT staff to improve the EHR for end users, thereby optimizing healthcare delivery, and improving patient care and access.  One of her goals is to work to improve the EHR in this institution such that it becomes a useful clinical research tool as well as a healthcare delivery tome.
