Emily Brigham

Dr. Emily Brigham is an assistant professor in the respiratory division at the University of British Columbia and is a research scientist at Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, as well as a practicing respirologist at Vancouver General Hospital.

Emily received her professional degrees at the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine and Public Health, completing her residency in Internal Medicine and fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the Johns Hopkins Hospital where she was subsequently hired as faculty.

Her research is focused on (1) the impact of diet and other metabolic factors on respiratory health in airways disease, (2) how these factors may augment or mitigate the symptomatic and inflammatory response to air pollution and other pro-inflammatory exposures, and (3) ways to translate these findings into action to improve respiratory health, particularly within susceptible and vulnerable populations.
