|Paediatric Respiratory Medicine
||To improve the health of children with respiratory diseases.
||Focuses on the aetiology and natural history of asthma/allergic disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, cystic fibrosis and hereditary telangiectasia and delivery of care for people with lung cancer, using e-health databases and collection of original data.
||To understand major lung conditions, e.g. asthma, and other health problems to improve patient healthcare.
|Smoking in Pregnancy
