"After I presented a research proposal to a small Eskimo village in Alaska many years ago, the Council Elder told me, "We will trust you with our children." I feel privileged to receive that trust from every parent of every child that I treat. I believe families deserve not only the best care but also our utmost efforts to improve that care through research and training."

  • Gregory J. Redding, MD, is chief of the Division of Pulmonary Medicine at Seattle Childrens Hospital. He is professor in the Department of Pediatrics and director of the Pediatric Pulmonary Training Center grant at the University of Washington School of Medicine. He earned his MD from Stanford University. He completed a pediatrics residency at Harbor General/UCLA and a pediatric pulmonary fellowship at the University of Colorado.

    Redding is committed to improvement in childrens health and health care through research, training, advocacy, clinical excellence and improvement in systems of health care. Redding is an internationally recognized expert and leader in pediatric pulmonary medicine. His current interests include children with chest wall and spine deformities, bronchiectasis and asthma. Redding's research interests include the pathogenesis of chronic lung disease in developing countries, disorders of the spine and thorax and disorders of the diaphragm. His training philosophy is to ensure critical thinking and creative application of physiologic principles to clinical problems. He is a consultant to the Maternal-Child Health Bureau on national leadership training in the health-care professions.

      Dr. Redding treated my son's asthma in the '80s/'90s. As far as I'm concerned, he's Ichiban!

    • Stephanie Olympia, Washington 02.11.14

      Dr. Redding is such an amazing doctor, he shows real compassion for his patients and their family and is very knowledgable in pulmonary care. He has made such a huge difference in my daughters life and he always puts my mind at ease when nothing else will. Thank you Dr. Redding for the amazing care you give to the children of our community!

Research Description

Clinical and physiologic epidemiology of pediatric lung diseases, currently including bronchiectasis in indigenous populations and chest wall disorders in infants.

Current research themes include:
1) bronchiectasis in developing countries and indigenous populations and
2) respiratory consequences of spine and chest wall deformities and their treatments
3) diaphragm disorders and evaluation of surgical interventions

Research Focus Area

Pulmonary, Chronic Conditions / Special Health Care Needs, Therapeutic Trials
