I don’t need to tell you that the lung plays an important part in the human body. But what happens when something goes wrong? Living with asthma, or other respiratory issues and allergies, can make life difficult, causing sufferers to think twice about things their peers will do on a whim. The Manchester Lung and Allergy Research Society understands this and wants to help.
The society aims to advance knowledge and research in respiratory and allergy medicine by encouraging basic science and transitional clinical research. It encourages participation in clinical trials recommended by a Research and Ethics Committee, provides mentoring for careers and gives advice to any students who are applying for research fellowships and grants. So if you’re the medical researcher of tomorrow, their experience and knowledge should prove invaluable. Perhaps even more importantly, the society seeks to promote healthy living and the prevention of respiratory disease.
The chair of the Manchester Lung and Allergy Research Society is Dr. Imran Satia, who’s giving you a chance to get involved. Dr. Satia is recruiting students to take part in an asthma research programme which has been approved by the University Ethics Committee and the Local Research Ethics Committee. After starting this programme last year, Dr. Satia has managed to find 71 patients but requires a further 30 to complete the research. So if you have asthma and are interested in the prevention of the condition or helping others with it, Dr. Satia wants to hear from you. All participants will be paid £60 for 3 short sessions, all based at the Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility just off Oxford Road.
