We are a network of world-leading researchers, working collaboratively on three key programmes of research – aligned with Asthma UK’s goals, identified as areas of greatest potential to make a real difference to people affected by asthma.
Our research focuses on developing, testing and implementing interventions which have the capacity to achieve substantial, sustained reductions in asthma morbidity and mortality.
We have created five strategic platforms to support and facilitate the research process. This ensures all research is
Our strategic platforms position us ideally to undertake world-leading applied asthma research and enable us to deliver world-class training for the next generation of applied asthma researchers.
Each programme of work is a collection of research projects and initiatives that look to address a specific area of applied asthma research.
They each have two academic leads. Along with our patient and public involvement volunteers, the leads ensure the research projects conducted are strategically aligned within their own programme, and sit well with the other two programmes.
All research conducted under the umbrella of the Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research benefits from our strategic platforms.
Each platform has a coordinator, and two lead academics, along with input from other academics and our patient and public involvement volunteers.
