Our research aims to understand more about respiratory and lung conditions (which usually affect breathing) to help patients live more normal lives.


We need volunteers at our Respiratory Research Centre, at Nottingham City Hospital, to help us shape the way we conduct research. You can be involved throughout the whole research process helping us shape our projects and also as a research volunteer in these projects to understand more about the way your lungs function in response to the environment and treatments.


We have seen the reward of successful research during COVID-19 with the latest findings on Dexamethasone, for which we were a part of, and we continue to conduct world-leading respiratory research as we have been conducting for over 10 years.


We are always seeking new volunteers with respiratory/lung Conditions such as Asthma and COPD to help us with our important research and join our Volunteer Register.


We sometimes have studies for participants that do not have a lung condition. Healthy volunteers without a lung or respiratory condition are also welcome to join of volunteer register.
