Research and Support

We work collaboratively on key areas of applied research to improve the prevention and management of asthma attacks.

This is supported by an ecosystem designed to facilitate and advance the world-leading research we undertake.

Encouraging good asthma control

Supported self-management is a way of helping people manage their asthma on a day-to-day basis. This programme of work is looking at ways of embedding supported self-management of asthma into primary care.

Maximising benefits of treatment

Asthma has different phenotypes and different triggers so not all treatments are suitable for every type of asthma. This programme of work is looking at how and why different people respond differently to treatment.

Reducing exacerbations and preventing deaths

Many asthma exacerbations could be prevented. This programme of work is looking at factors that might trigger an exacerbation and if we can predict individuals at risk.
