Who we are

We are a team of researchers based at the Blizard Institute within Queen Mary University of London. Our team is working with Professor Jonathan Grigg, who leads several studies about asthma and lung health in children and young people.

Our aim is to improve life and health of young people at school. Our current focus is on asthma, the most common chronic condition in young people, but we are planning to expand the initiative to other areas of health in the coming years.

This work is supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) North Thames at Bart’s Health NHS Trust. The views expressed are those of the author and not necessarily those of the NHS, the NIHR or the Department of Health. From 2018 the project will in addition be supported by the Barts Charity.

Our research would not be possible without the amazing input from our partners and collaborators, including:
