 ‘To agonise or block: the beta receptor in COPD'

 Biosketch: I am a clinical lecturer in epidemiology at LSHTM I have a CCT in Respiratory and General Medicine and work as an Honorary Consultant at University College London NHS Trust. I gained a PhD at University College London, investigating determinants of exacerbation frequency in COPD.  I joined LSHTM in October 2010 and hold a Medical Research Council Population Health Scientist Fellowship. My research interest is exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and current projects include investigating the relationship between ambient temperature, air pollution and infections on daily symptoms and COPD exacerbations as well as associations between cardiovascular risk and COPD exacerbations.
