Hans Michael trained in Austria, South Africa, UK and USA. He leads a group that investigates the pathogenesis of asthma and other chronic lung diseases. His particular interest is in the role of the asthma susceptibility gene ADAM33 in asthma and influence of the maternal environment on the early origin of lung disease using in vivo and in vitro asthma and allergic airway inflammation research models. A further related interest is developing novel Anti-ADAM33 agents as potential disease modifying asthma treatment.

His research is based in the Faculty of Medicine and NIHR Southampton Biomedical Research Centre Respiratory theme, where he is a principal investigator.
