Dr. Billatos is investigating gene expression alterations in the bronchial airway associated with acute exposure to tobacco cigarettes. Furthermore, this response to smoking may differ in patients with COPD giving insight into the pathogenesis and development of COPD.

He is also working in the DECAMP consortium (Detection of Early Cancer Among Military Personnel) which aims to improve the early diagnosis of lung cancer in veterans via biomarker validation and development. This project serves as a biorepository of specimens and data unparalleled in contemporary pulmonary medical research.

Finally, Dr. Billatos is also pioneering a project to leverage the local field of injury in the evaluation of peripheral nodules via electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (ENB) and radial-probe endobronchial ultrasound (r-EBUS).
