I will as and when I hear anything


I would be interested to know what form the research will take and whether it will be in collaboration with any of the specialist hospitals also currently doing IPF research. Please do keep us up to date & thanks for the info. :-)


The research Professor Hubbard will be involved with is at Nottingham City Hospital

They have been doing IPF research for years but this is going to be much more intense.Many Breathe Easy members are involved with taking part in respiratory research at the City Hospital's,Nottingham Respiratory Research Unit,NRRU.


Thanks KOTC! :-)
