Breathing Matters

Fighting Pulmonary Fibrosis and Infection

Breathing Matters is part of UCLH Charity (Reg No 229771). It has been set up to raise awareness and work with patients to help find a cure and develop better treatments for Interstitial Lung Diseases such as Pulmonary Fibrosis and Respiratory Infections such as Bronchiectasis and Pneumonia.

The aim of Breathing Matters is to support the research work carried out at UCL Respiratory in its commitment to find better ways to diagnose and treat respiratory diseases, and to also encourage patients, their families and friends to become actively involved (as advocates, advisors and fundraisers).

The focus of the research is on ILDs and Respiratory Infections. Both these areas are currently under-funded in the UK and we aim to raise awareness of these little known diseases.

UCL Respiratory is one of the world’s leading research centres for respiratory diseases. The centre promotes and conducts medical research into the prevention, treatment and cure of respiratory diseases.
