UF pulmonary division joins international group
The UF College of Medicine’s division of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine has been designated a World Association of Sarcoidosis and Granulomatous Disorders, or WASOG, clinic.
WASOG focuses on interstitial lung diseases including sarcoidosis, or the growth of tiny collections of inflammatory cells in different parts of the body such as the lungs, lymph nodes, eyes and skin.
WASOG is also a partner with the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research, the world’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure for the disease and improving patient care.
As a WASOG practice, the UF division and its faculty will now have the opportunity to collaborate with research leaders within their field worldwide. They will also have access to sarcoidosis-specific
trial recruitments for clinical studies and trials.
