Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Center

The Vanderbilt Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Center is nationally recognized for patient education and support, clinical trials and lung transplantation.

Our center hosts a monthly IPF support group serving IPF patients and their families. Because of our coordinated care and world-class research, we see patients from Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, North Carolina, Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi and Georgia.

Almost every phase 2 or 3 IPF study in the U.S. has been conducted at Vanderbilt. We have been among the top 5 enrollers in every IPF clinical trial to date. We are a member of the National Institutes of Health IPF network, an elite group of 11 nationally recognized IPF centers. We are one of only 3 IPF centers in the network that can evaluate patients for all treatment options, including transplant, at their first clinic visit.

Vanderbilt Pulmonary Diagnostic and Interventional Program

We have state-of-the-art bronchoscopy and treatment suites. We use the latest tools to diagnose and treat pulmonary, pleural and airway diseases including endobronchial ultrasound for fine needle aspiration, superdimension guided biopsy of peripheral lesions, lasers and stents for management of airway disease, endobronchial brachytherapy and autoflorescence bronchoscopy to detect dysplastic and in situ carcinomas.
