The Environment, Respiratory Health and Allergy theme’s research addresses the causes and consequence of respiratory and allergic diseases, collectively which place an enormous burden on NHS resources.

Areas of focus

Cluster One – Experimental Medicine and Therapeutics Cluster:

  • Investigate the benefit and mechanisms of early immunotherapy
  • Extend our studies on the causes and mechanisms of airway remodelling

Cluster Two – Biomarkers, Co-Diagnostics, Imaging and Devices:

  • Seek to understand the genetics, epigenetics of key pathways in allergic inflammation and persistence
  • Extend our research on IgE structure, function and regulation

Cluster Three – Population Sciences:

  • Investigate the links between poor air quality and respiratory and allergic diseases
