"Interventional Pulmonology and Biomedical Engineering: Common Grounds and Future Collaboration"
This presentation is an introduction to the field of interventional pulmonology. It would highlight its diverse procedural aspects, dealing with mechanics of air, fluid and solid matter in the lungs and current available technology. Also, this presentation will highlight areas of growth needed in our current devices and potential for collaboration with Biomedical Engineering.
Dr. Pannu is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine at The Ohio State University since August 2018. She completed her Interventional Pulmonary Fellowship training at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in July 2018. Prior to this she has completed her Critical Care fellowship at Mayo Clinic in 2015 and Pulmonary Fellowship at Bridgeport Hospital/Yale New Haven health in 2017. She has completed a postdoctoral diploma in clinical and translational research at Mayo Clinic (CCaTS) in 2015. She is currently the Director of the Interventional Pulmonology Translational Research at Ohio State University Medical Center. She aims to build a high quality research core at OSUMC in the evolving field of interventional pulmonology which is intricately connected with diagnosis and treatment primary/secondary lung cancer. She has designed multiple randomized controlled trials in the past and is currently involved as the onsite principal investigator of a multicenter randomized controlled trial related to drainage of pleural effusion. Her research interest include innovative device development, cryobiopsy of lung, lung nodule biopsy, pleural diseases, quality improvement and standardization of procedures. She has an interest in building long term collaboration between Interventional Pulmonology and Biomedical Engineering. She is assisted by her colleagues, Christian Ghattas, MBBCh, Alberto Revelo, MD and Harsh Shah, MD.
