Together with our Irish partners, BREATH offers a wonderful opportunity to gain new insights into lung disease. By better understanding this often ‘invisible’ killer disease, we hope to develop new and improved treatments – as well as helping prevent COPD by public awareness in the affected regions
Professor John Lockhart, Director of the Institute of Biomedical and Environmental Health Research, UWS
Deaths from respiratory diseases recently exceeded those from coronary heart disease in Scotland for the first time. Increasingly it is recognised that lung health needs to be made a national priority, as poor public awareness has resulted in an under-prioritisation of this disease
