We are interested in different types of lung cell and the triggers that activate these cells. Lung cell activation could contribute to respiratory diseases such as asthma. 

The objective of this study is to collect detailed longitudinal clinical phenotypic information linked to bio-samples from patients with pulmonary hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and other lung / respiratory diseases including COVID-19 and compare with appropriate control groups including healthy volunteers.

This programme comprises multidisciplinary research across the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust with particular emphasis on patient orientated research. Current project include biomarker discovery, novel therapies and diagnostic imaging.
