As a clinical scientist, Stephen Holgate has contributed greatly to the understanding and treatment of allergic and respiratory diseases, including asthma, COPD and COVID-19. His contributions span science, medicine, public health, and policy initiatives, all for the benefit of patients and society. As a true physician-scientist, he has contributed to the promotion of respiratory and environmental health at multiple levels: discovery of new scientific principles; translating these to more effective therapy not only for asthma and COPD but also for COVID-19; forming and leading organisations that promote lung health and chairing committees that write reports aiming to influence Government Policy for promoting health both in his own speciality and beyond.
