Meet our researchers
We couldn’t do what we do without our researchers. Here are a few of our research stars.
“My research is focussed on harnessing white blood cells of the patient’s own immune system to attack solid cancers such as mesothelioma.”
Dr John Maher, King's College London
“We test novel technology for the treatment of sleep apnoea, if successful this could take therapy into the 21st century.”
Dr Joerg Steier, Guys and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust.
"We’re finding out if a thigh muscle stimulator can help to improve walking ability and leg muscle strength in people with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. We hope that this will increase independence and quality of life."
Claire Nolan, Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust
“Genomic research could revolutionise the way we treat lung disease.”
Professor Louise Wain, GSK/British Lung Foundation Chair in Respiratory Research, University of Leicester
"Treatments for IPF remain inadequate. We are hoping to identify new therapeutic approaches by investigating the abnormal genomic landscape in IPF."
Professor Rachel Chambers, University College London
"Speaking to patients with bronchiectasis, you realise that they often have a long road before they eventually get a diagnosis, and are frustrated to find out there is very little research into the condition, and no treatments supported by strong evidence. Our research is trying to change that."
Professor James Chalmers, GSK/British Lung Foundation Chair in Respiratory Research, University of Dundee
"We're measuring the pattern of infection and inflammation in the airways of children to see what this can tell us about which children go on to develop asthma."
Professor Sejal Saglani, Imperial College London
