Dr Yvonne Belessis is a Conjoint Senior Lecturer with the School of Women’s & Children’s, UNSW Medicine.

Dr Belessis is also Senior Staff Specialist in Respiratory Medicine, Director of Flexible Bronchoscopy Services and the Director of Cystic Fibrosis Services at Sydney Children’s Hospital.

Her main field of research is early airway infection and inflammation in children with cystic fibrosis (CF) and she is currently an Associate Investigator on two North American CF Foundation funded grants and three NHMRC-funded Project grants related to clinical research in CF.  Her particular interest is in biomarkers of early CF lung disease and her PhD thesis was titled “Assessment of non-invasive measures of early lung disease in infants and young children with cystic fibrosis.”  The main chapter from Dr Belessis’ thesis was published in the American Review of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. 

Dr Belessis is also a founding clinician of the SCH Multidisciplinary Oesophageal Atresia-Tracheo-oesophageal Clinic established in 2011. This innovative clinic aims to provide best-practice, co-ordinated clinical care for children with this orphan lung disease from birth through to late adolescence.  These children have long-term respiratory morbidity including recurrent aspiration, bacterial bronchitis and bronchiectasis and restrictive lung disease which impacts on their quality of life in adulthood. Our aim is to support these children and their families and together achieve the best possible outcomes. Additonally collaborative research is an important aspect of our clinic and prospective studies are currently in progress.

Research Interests

  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Airway infection / inflammation
  • Non-invasive biomarkers to detect early disease predict bronchiectasis
  • Earlier targeted therapies
  • Epidemiological studies
  • Pathophysiology of lung disease in children
