Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research

Early Career Researchers

Our Early Career Researchers are making important contributions to asthma research

The Centre has an amazing group of Early Career Researchers (ECRs). We use the UK Research and Innovation definition of ECR stages: doctoral, immediately postdoctorate and transition to independent researcher.

Each of the ECR members is working on a particular project in the field of applied respiratory research and has the opportunity to become a future research leader. Through the Centre, we offer additional training, support and connections to help them continue to develop their careers.


You can read about our ECRs' projects, their publications and research activity as well as information about their background on their profile pages.
