Healthy Lungs for Life: A Life Course Approach to Reduce COPD

Grant number: 1193993 | Funding period: 2021 - 2025



Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (COPD) causes breathing distress, disability and premature death. I have shown that COPD mostly has its origins in childhood. This means we can now identify early life risk factors to prevent COPD or help us catch it early, to improve health. My 5-year vision is to reduce the dire burden of COPD by creating evidence to change guidelines and policy and facilitating the transfer of that knowledge to practice.
