I head the severe asthma service in Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and have published several of my research work on severe asthma since then. I run a weekly severe asthma clinic at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and chair a severed asthma MDT held fortnightly at the Bradford Institute for Health Research. We are one of the severe asthma centre who are able to initiate Biologics in Severe Asthma.I have particular interest in inhalation profiles in patients with severe asthma and COPD and have published his work on this field.

I have pioneered the use of Omalizumab in the treatment of severe allergic asthma and have been involved in several Phase 2 & 3 clinical trials studying the newer biologic treatment in severe asthma.

In 2016,I was one the leading investigators in the APEX 2 study, which was the largest real life study in the UK on the real life effectiveness of Omalizumab in the treatment of severe allergic asthma.

This unit has grown to become one of the largest self-funded respiratory clinical trials in the UK.I have been the chief co-ordinating investigator in the UK for several multi-national phase 2 & 3 severe asthma and COPD trials. The Unit has recruited several Global first and European first patients into these trials. The unit attracts patients for its Clinical Trials programme from across the region. The unit has well established links with all major pharmaceutical companies as well as clinical trials organisations
