“COPD Exacerbations and response to treatment”

Professor Mona Bafadhel is the current Kemp Post-doctoral Fellow in the Medical Sciences at Lincoln College at the University of Oxford and an NIHR Post-doctoral Fellow. She is a clinical researcher, working in the Nuffield Department of Medicine, an Associate Professor in Respiratory Medicine at the University of Oxford and an Honorary Respiratory Consultant Physician at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. She graduated from the University of Birmingham and undertook her junior medical training at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital and The Royal Brompton Hospital. Her interests in respiratory medicine led to specialist training in the Oxford deanery and subsequently gaining a PhD at the University of Leicester studying biomarkers in exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Professor Bafadhel research interests are in the field of airways disease, particularly the investigation of the mechanisms aligned to using phenotypes of exacerbations of COPD. This has led to studying the role of the eosinophil in COPD, using statistical approaches to define particular sub-groups and to the delivery of therapeutic strategies to patients, working across the translational spectrum.
