Our Research: Respiratory

Our aims

We will optimise the treatment of common respiratory and fungal diseases by applying a P4 approach. Our research will:

  • Build a better understanding of the underlying causes of these conditions
  • Develop blood and sputum tests, as well as biomarkers in breath, which detect and more accurately characterise respiratory disease and infection to enable an earlier and more personalised approach to treatment
  • Test new drug compounds aimed at novel targets to cure or improve serious lung diseases and minimise symptoms
