Fighting Pulmonary Fibrosis and Infection
Breathing Matters is part of UCLH Charity (company number 09980449, charity number 1165398). 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 carried out at UCL Respiratory to find better ways to diagnose and treat these diseases. We encourage patients, their families and friends to become actively involved (as advocates, advisors and fundraisers).
Breathing Matters exclusively funds research into pulmonary fibrosis, bronchiectasis and pneumonia – all of these are currently under-funded in the UK – and we aim to raise awareness of these 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.
