Biography

Stephen Kirkby, MD, is the Clinical Director of the Lung and Heart-Lung Transplant Programs at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and an assistant professor of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at the Ohio State University College of Medicine. Dr. Kirkby graduated from Penn State University College of Medicine. He completed his residency training in internal medicine and pediatrics at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. He then completed fellowship training in adult pulmonary/critical care medicine and pediatric pulmonary medicine. He is board-certified in internal medicine, pediatrics, adult pulmonary medicine, critical care medicine, and pediatric pulmonary medicine. Dr. Kirkby’s current areas of research focus on mechanisms of disease pathogenesis in cystic fibrosis (CF) and clinical outcomes following lung transplantation. His main clinical interests include CF and other congenital lung diseases, lung transplantation, treatment of unusual pulmonary infections, and critical care medicine.
