    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Vij is a Clinical Associate of Medicine in the Department of Medicine, Section of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. Dr. Vij’s clinical interest is caring for patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD), including those with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and connective tissue disease-associated ILD. Her research focuses on using genetic and genomic techniques to understand connective tissue disease-associated ILD and the use of immunosuppression in patients with ILD.
