    From Dr. Vece

    My clinical and research interests are in children with rare lung disease including interstitial lung disease, lung disease related to bone marrow transplant, and lung disease related to rheumatologic conditions.  I am a member of the chILDRN research network.  In addition I am part of the aerodigestive program which focuses on patients with complex gastrointestinal, upper and lower airway diseases.  This is a multi-disciplinary program involving physicians from pulmonary, gastroenterology, and otolaryngology.
