Clinical Interests

Dr. Sweet received his undergraduate, graduate and medical degrees at the University of Michigan. He was pediatric resident and pediatric pulmonology fellow at Washington University before joining the faculty in 1996. Dr. Sweet became medical director of the Pediatric Lung Transplant Program in 1999. He is board certified in Pediatric Pulmonology by the American Board of Pediatrics. Past honors include the Parker B. Francis Fellowship in Pulmonary Research, Scholar of the Child Health Research Center of Excellence in Developmental Biology, Washington University, Medical Scientist Award for Excellence, University of Michigan. Professional Societies include the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation, the American Thoracic Society and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Dr. Sweet's primary research is focused on improved understanding of the important factors determining outcome after lung transplantation in children. He is PI of an NIH funded multicenter collaborative study of the role B-cell immunity plays in lung transplant outcomes.Dr. Sweet has been Chair of the Organ Transplantation and Procurement Network (OPTN) / United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) Pediatric Transplantation Committee and Policy Oversight Committee and Secretary of the Board of Directors of the OPTN/UNOS, He is currently Secretary/Treasurer of the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation and Immediate Past President of the Missouri Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
