Elizabeth Oelsner is a general internist, respiratory epidemiologist, and Herbert Irving Associate Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC). She earned her M.D. from the Columbia Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and her Masters in Public Health from the Mailman School. Dr. Oelsner’s research leverages multi-disciplinary approaches and collaborative studies to identify and understand risk factors for chronic lung diseases. She is currently leading studies that apply quantitative lung imaging to assess the pulmonary parenchymal and microvascular effects of emerging respiratory risk factors including COVID-19 and vaping products. She also leads the NHLBI Pooled Cohorts Study, which has harmonized extensive cardiopulmonary phenotypic data, including lung function and respiratory events, to perform large-scale epidemiologic analyses relevant to cardiopulmonary and tobacco epidemiology. Dr. Oelsner is the Principal Investigator for the Collaborative Cohort of Cohorts for COVID-19 Research, which aims to provide a collaborative resource to define risk and resilience factors for COVID-19 illness and its long-term sequelae, as well as to study the impact of the pandemic on trajectories of health and disease.
