Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research

Current Students

Our current students form a vibrant and active group - though they are based at various locations around the UK

Each of our students are undertaking a unique project in the field of applied asthma research, and have supervisors from at least two member institutions.

Affiliate students have been formally adopted by the Centre. They must be based in one of our member institutions, and be working on a study that aligns with our programmes of work and/or platforms. Benefits of being an affiliated student include access to the postgraduate training scheme.
