Clinical and Research Interests
Dr. Krishnan is Professor of Medicine and Public Health, and Associate Vice President for Population Health Sciences in the Office of Health Affairs at the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System (UI Health System). He is responsible for developing, testing, and implementing healthcare interventions to improve care, outcomes, and affordability of care for populations served by UI Health System.

He is an expert in clinical investigation in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and is a leader in the field of clinical effectiveness research. He is the Chair of the Steering Committee for the COPD Outcomes-based Network for Clinical Effectiveness and Research Translation (CONCERT), which was funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to develop the first, national, stakeholder-supported research agenda and by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to develop a national research infrastructure to conduct clinical effectiveness research in COPD. CONCERT pioneered the use of Analytic Hierarchy Process to identify the expressed needs of patients, clinicians, and other stakeholders for clinical effectiveness research in COPD. He serves as a Principal Investigator in National Institutes of Health (e.g., AsthmaNet, CHICAGO II) and Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)-funded multi-investigator groups (e.g., PArTNER, PELICAN, CHICAGO Plan).

He participates in several national and international advisory groups or committees, including the FDA Pulmonary and Allergy Drugs Advisory Committee (past Chair), Global Initiative for Asthma Scientific Committee (GINA; member), European Respiratory Society /American Thoracic Society COPD Exacerbations Guidelines Writing Committee (co-Chair), NIH/NHLBI Clinical Trials review committee (current chair), and PCORI Improving Healthcare Systems merit review panel (current Chair).
