Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research


Find out about our extensive network and members

Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research network

 The Centre network brings together leading researchers, clinicians, people with asthma, education and implementation specialists from across the UK.

We are a 'virtual' Centre - in that there is no physical building, rather we are based at various locations across the UK, led by the University of Edinburgh and Queen Mary University of London. We have various face-to-face meetings through the year, including our Annual Scientific Meeting held each Autumn.
