Asthma

Asthma

Asthma is a common respiratory condition where the muscles around the walls of the airways tighten due to an asthmatic trigger. This makes the passageway narrower and the lining of the airways becomes inflamed and start to swell. Sometimes mucus also builds up which can make the airways more narrow.

Current Research Activities

Our research programs explore new ways to prevent, and better understand asthma and improve its diagnosis and management.
