Robert Vassallo, MD

Robert Vassallo

Dr. Vassallo obtained his medical degree from the University of Malta.  Following completion of medical school training, he moved to the United States in 1995 to pursue residency training in internal medicine and subsequently pulmonary and critical care sub-specialty training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.  After additional training in Immunology as a Mayo Scholar, he joined the staff at the Mayo Clinic and currently practices as a pulmonary specialist with efforts committed to clinical outpatient consultative care, inpatient pulmonary hospital care, and research.  His research is focused on understanding mechanisms by which cigarette smoking impairs host immunity and promotes lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma.  Another major focus of his research is with certain interstitial lung diseases that cigarette smokers are prone to develop, including pulmonary Langerhans cell Histiocytosis and rheumatoid arthritis associated diffuse lung disease.
