Matt Craig



Dr. Matt Craig is Chief of the Lung Biology and Disease Branch within the Division of Lung Diseases of the NIH’s National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. The Lung Biology and Disease Branch overseen by Dr. Craig supports research and research training in pulmonary fibrosis and other interstitial lung diseases, lung vascular biology including pulmonary hypertension, lung development, regeneration, and transplantation, aspects of acute lung injury and critical care including acute respiratory distress syndrome, pneumonia, and sepsis, as well as pulmonary host responses to HIV/AIDS and other infections of the lung. Dr. Craig received his Ph.D. in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health where his research focused on characterizing mechanisms of immune-mediated inflammation in response to pulmonary infections. Before assuming his current Branch Chief position, Dr. Craig served as NHLBI’s Program Director for Pulmonary Fibrosis and Lung Transplantation. In this role, Dr. Craig led the development of a research consortium to advance novel models to better study idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and another that supports observational clinical studies to understand the impact of site-specific lung transplant selection criteria and clinical management strategies on donor lung utilization and outcomes in lung transplant recipients.
