How do we treat respiratory problems

The Scottish Centre for Respiratory Research was set up in 1997 and is led by Brian Lipworth, Professor of Allergy and Pulmonology. The group comprises a team of doctors, scientists, nurses and technicians whose aim is to improve the quality of life for people who suffer from breathing problems like COPD, asthma and hayfever through public awareness, education and research.
