What we do

Respiritory testingWe are interested in common conditions as well as rarer illnesses, specialising in the following  areas:

  • Allergic asthma
  • Chronic asthma
  • Acute asthma
  • Exercise induced asthma
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Chronic cough
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
  • Bronchiectasis

Some of these diseases are particularly common in the Yorkshire and Humber region, so the work we do makes a real difference in the surrounding towns and villages. Clinical trials like ours play an important role in contributing to improvements in medical health and more effective use of resources through evidence based medicine.

Patient care is extremely important to us and we have made sure to invest in top notch facilities.  We have an excellent laboratory with modern specialist equipment, ensuring high quality research which leads to real breakthroughs in understanding and treatment of respiratory disease. Convenience is also important and we have a lounge, kitchen and cooking facilities for volunteers.
