Dr. Dawn DeMeo is a Pulmonary/Critical Care specialist with a care focus on advanced lung disease in women with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). She is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a senior respiratory genetics researcher in the Channing Division of Network Medicine.
Over the past two decades she has developed a vision to streamline effective multidisciplinary care for women and men with COPD, with an eventual goal of designing and implementing specialized treatment informed by needs specific to genetic susceptibility and other risk factors, sensitive to social (gender) and other biological (sex hormone-related) aspects that may impact differences in men and women with advanced lung disease. She holds an MD from Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
