B. Louise Giles, MD, is a leader in the field of pediatric pulmonary medicine. She treats children with a wide range of respiratory disorders, including asthma, chronic respiratory failure and non-CF bronchiectasis.

As an active researcher, Dr. Giles studies pulmonary health for those with chronic lung disease. She has investigated the mechanisms that regulate the expression of extracellular superoxide dismutase (EC-SOD) in the developing lung. She has also studied the use of mechanical ventilation, such as high-frequency oscillatory ventilation when conventional mechanical ventilation fails.
