BREATHE: Health Data Research Hub for Respiratory Health

BREATHE is one of seven Health Data Research Hubs set up across the UK. Coordinated by Health Data Research UK (HDR UK), the Hubs are part of a four-year £37.5million investment from UK Research and Innovation's Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, to enable the safe and responsible use of health-related data at scale for research and innovation.

We want to make respiratory health better by changing the way the NHS, researchers, industry and charities use data.

BREATHE will help navigate respiratory health data sets from across the UK, creating a digital resource where trained, approved experts can access data safely and responsibly, on an unprecedented scale.

We are working closely with patients and the public to ensure that data is used transparently and for the benefit of those living with respiratory conditions in the UK.

Asthma UK Centre for Applied Research

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 UK, is a world where asthma attacks do not happen.

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

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