Dr. Martiniano is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado and Children’s Hospital Colorado. She is a pediatric pulmonologist who focuses on lung infections, specifically, nontuberculous mycobacterial infections in children with cystic fibrosis.
- Research interest for patients
As a national clinical expert and lead researcher, Dr. Martiniano serves as national principal investigator of two multicenter studies in NTM: The Prospective Evaluation of NTM Disease in Cystic Fibrosis (PREDICT Study) and The Prospective Algorithm for Treatment of NTM in Cystic Fibrosis (PATIENCE Study). Both are funded by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. She is also the co-investigator and director of the Clinical Research Core for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Colorado’s CF NTM Research Development Program.
Her clinical and translational research has already confirmed the rate of the infection and established the feasibility of new clinical tools such as diagnostic algorithms. Over time, Dr. Martiniano seeks not only to improve outcomes for patients with NTM, but also to help clinicians and the broader cystic fibrosis community care for kids with cystic fibrosis and NTM.
