BIO

My main laboratory research interest is in asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and fibrogenic lung reactions and our group focuses on the role of Glucagon-like peptide 1 in asthma outcomes, with an emphasis on the obese asthma phenotype. Additionally we are collaborating with Genomics Medicine Ireland in a large study exploring the genomic basis of asthma, it's endophenotypes and responses to therapy in Ireland. We are also active in clinical research of asthma, COPD and smoking-related interstitial fibrosis, and involved in a number of ongoing clinical trials through the UCD Clinical Research Centre on the St Vincent's University Hospital campus.
