Zero tolerance of asthma attacks

Since its launch in 2014, the Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research has been at the forefront of research making a real difference to the lives of those affected by asthma.

Our vision, aligned with that of Asthma + Lung UK, is a world where asthma attacks do not happen.

A collaborative environment

We are a network of world-leading researchers, working collaboratively on key areas of research to improve the prevention and management of asthma attacks.

Strategic research priorities

Our research focuses on developing, testing and implementing interventions which have the potential to achieve substantial, sustained reductions in asthma morbidity and mortality.

Continuously improving the research environment

We have created a supportive ecosystem to facilitate and advance the world-leading applied asthma research we undertake. This ensures all research is

  • of the highest possible quality
  • conducted efficiently
  • with people affected by asthma at the core of all we do

Training the next generation of researchers

Creating capacity for the future, our Postgraduate training aims to enrol the most exceptional candidates and nurture them to become the next generation of leaders in world-class applied asthma research.
