Our current PhD students form a vibrant and active group from various specialist areas. There are 26 students based across the Centre partner organisations in the four UK nations. As Student Representative, Jasmine will play a key role in bringing together our cohort of PhD students.

During her time as Student Representative, Jasmine will gain insight into the running of the Centre and will represent the student voice at Centre Management Committee meetings.

Mats Stage Baxter will be deputy to Jasmine, supporting her in her role and stepping in when required.

For her PhD studies, Jasmine will be exploring the use of electronic reminders and incentives to improve adherence to inhaled asthma treatment in adolescents.
