Research Interests

Dr. Aujla is the project director for the pediatric Severe Asthma Research Program (SARP) at the Children's Hospital of PIttsburgh of UPMC. This study is in conjunction with the Severe Asthma Research Program in adults led by principal investigator Sally Wenzel. The goal of this study is to further characterize and evaluate severe asthma in children. We are currently in phase III of SARP.
Dr. Aujla is also the pediatric co-investigator for AsthmaNet, the NIH funded multicenter clinical trials network for asthma. These trials focus on new management approaches for asthma.

Active Research Projects / Grants

  • AsthmaNet: Phenotypic Influences on Asthma Treatment. This is a multicenter clinical trials network focusing on new management approaches for asthma.  Role: Co-Investigator
  • SARP: Implications and Stability of Clinical and Molecular Phenotypes of Severe Asthma. The studies identify new/novel molecular pathways, link them to baseline and longitudinal clincal, physiologic and radiologic outcomes and assess their stability over time leading to new molecular targets for therapy for severe asthma patients.  Role: CoInvestigator
